Nice place for a day out, especially if you bring your kids. Very special too see, including the look you get over the area and all the way to Canigou.

We took our family many times to visit the Orgues, fascinating to think that they have been standing for hundreds of years, all ages of the family loved the visit.

One of few areas in the world to have such rock formations, others being in Turkey and the USA. A spectacular view of eroded sandstone usually in beautiful sunshine and with a backdrop of the snow capped Pyrenees

You will only need and hour or so to walk round but for a couple of Euros is worth a visit. Fascinating place.

Spectacular formations in large, circular site. Easy 800m walk through woodland to reach the site. Were staying in the area and thought we should see these rare sandy rocks- glad we did! Amazing, worth 5 euros to get in.

Take a brake from the beach and visit this "Masterpiece of Nature" in the Tet valley. Erosion through thousand of years made these spectacular sceneries. The local compare it with Bryce Canyon in USA

The 'organ-like' rock formations in this area are truly spectacular. The gradually erosion caused by water over millennia create these towering sculptural formations. You can get great aerial views of des orgues by taking the road out from Ille-sur-Tet towards Montalba and there is a...More
