Has a nice walk from town to the bridge and back. The bridge itself is pretty and obviously has a lot of history but I wouldn't say worth a special trip to see it.

Situated at the crossroads, turn right to Gavarnie and left to Argeles Gazost. An interesting stop off point to admire the gorge and river below plus the scenery in and around this place. They do bungee jumping off this bridge!!

We just happened upon this bridge on the way from Luz Saint Sauveur to Gavarnie. So. High. You can't miss it! We did pull over and walk on it- take pictures and a closer look.

We were given a map with a good walk on it and hadn't realised that this bridge was there. It spans a lovely gorge, so well worth a visit.

Not much here but the bridge but it is an amazing structure. Just outside of town a few minutes so worth the drive. Great photo opportunity.

Impressive bridge to walk over and look at. Beautiful views. Space nearby to park car and it is quiet.

We explored the walking trail from Luz to Pont Napoleon which is suitable for most levels of fitness. The Pont itself is stunning with great history. We were able to walk a steeper trail to view it from underneath & get close to the water....More

We stopped after a drive up to Cirque de Gavarnie. The history or the Pont Napoleon is worth the read. As much as I blame the engineer in the family for stopping at these rather amazing old structures I must admit I find it almost...More
