Col du Tourmalet
Needless to say, with a giant like the Tourmalet in our valleys, neighbouring the mighty Aubisque, hearts beat faster and passions run high here every season. Lourdes makes the ideal base camp for cycling out to the mountain passes: the Marian town is located on the 100 km loop of the Col du Tourmalet, halfway between the 2 sides of this legendary pass.
