At the crossroads of Barèges and Gavarnie, welcome to the valley of Luz-Saint-Sauveur with its warm villages, the largest of which is Luz.
Luz is full of historical and cultural wealth due to a large extent to Napoleon III: fortified church, Solferino chapel, Napoleon's bridge, the thermal district and the local Monday market.
Proud of its past and resolutely looking to the future, the valley of Luz is amazing due to its landscapes as well as to its way of life. Surrounding this market town are eight authentic villages forming the soul of this valley. Each of them will surprise you: Chateau de Sainte Marie (castle), water mills, cobbled streets, traditional houses, churches, wash houses or perhaps the organic bakery and craft brewery!
