Ossau valley

 

The Vallée d'Ossau is a preserved valley that has kept its traditions: pastoralism and transhumance, songs and dances ossaloises. Here nature is respected and offers us a rich panel both flora and fauna face the majesty of the Pic du Midi d'Ossau dit Jean-Pierre. The shepherds perpetuate transhumance to offer us an authentic cheese rich in taste. The animals always carry their cowbell so that the shepherd can find them. The bells are still made in Bearn and can be bought as souvenirs. In the Ossau Valley, you can see the Bearded Vulture, the Tawny Vulture, the Marmot, the Isard and maybe ... the Bear.
