  • Do the climb is very impressive and the spectacular panorama. A must-see when visiting the region. There should be tickets for a session at the planetarium, otherwise, you will not be able to attend. I regret not being able to do the evening with dinner and a visit to the Observatory (at 4, it's coming back quite expensive).

  • We took the gondola that rose us quickly to the Pic du Midi. The view is breathtaking, it's what makes the site so magnificent. In addition, movies at the planetarium, the Museum and activities perfectly explains the universe of the peak. Memories etched in memories.

  • Stunning views on the high Pyrenees. The price of the cable car is expensive personally, and it increases (36 euros in 2015, 38 in 2017). Good presentations of the site by organizers. The planetarium is filled quickly, remember to book on the internet. It would have been I think useful to accentuate the visit to the site with scientific data (new stars, planet...) If you intend to eat on-site plan what. €6 for a sandwich daunat, at this price point I prefer to take on a rest area... Otherwise nothing to say on the view, nature is well done
