Conques is located at the confluence of the Dourdou and Ouche rivers. It is built on a hillside and has classic narrow Medieval streets.

Consequently, most day visitors enter on foot and, as at least one overnight visitor has observed, the majority of the tourists depart in the late afternoon, leaving the town much less crowded.

#Cycling French #Pyrenees. I’m surrounded by the snowy peaks of the #French Pyrenees, but I can’t even breathe in the crisp mountain air.

Standing at a thigh-wrenching ride of 2,115 metres, it’s the highest road in the region and a Tour de France staple climb.
