Hotels in the Catalan Pyrenees, Cataluña, Spain
|The Pyrenees (also spelled
Pyrenées) (Spanish: Pirineos; French: Pyrénées; Catalan:
Pirineus; Occitan: Pirenèus; Aragonese: Perinés; Basque:
Pirinioak) are a range of mountains in southwest Europe that form a natural
border between France and Spain. They separate the Iberian Peninsula from
the rest of continental Europe, and extend for about 430 km (267 mi) from
the Bay of Biscay (Cap Higuer) to the Mediterranean Sea (Cap de Creus).
For the most part, the main crest
forms a massive divider between France and Spain, with the tiny country
of Andorra sandwiched in between. Catalonia and the Basque Country have
historically extended on both sides of the mountain range, with small northern
portions in France and much larger southern parts in Spain
