Fort du Portalet

Fortress in Vallée d'Aspe

Built on the right bank of the Gave d'Aspe, this imposing fortress was built in the mid-19th century to protect the border from a possible Spanish invasion.

From April to October, tours (€10) in English can be organised through the Bedous tourist office or online (www.tourisme-aspe.com/fort-du-portalet.html).
