About the border[edit]

Important information that ought to be included. Does the border between France and Spain absolutely follow the crest of the peaks and ridges of the Pyrenees (and the watershed), or are there exceptions to this?

For example, here in the U.S.A., a lot of the boundary between Idaho and Montana absolutely follows the Continental Divide, which is the crest of the Rocky Mountains, and the watershed between water that flows west to the Pacific and water that flows east to the Atlantic. There are other boundaries in the U.S.A. and Canada that follow watersheds (the crests of mountains and ridges) like this. 74.163.43.71 (talk) 05:24, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Absolutely not. Especially in the central Pyrenées. The highest summits (Aneto and Posets) are totally in Spain. And the Val d'Aran is part of Spain, although geographically open on France, with a language (aranais) now official, that is a variety of occitan gascon. Morburre (talk) 11:28, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

No Spanish Resorts[edit]

I have added some missing Spanish ski resorts to the list, I guess the author of the previous list was French!David 13:26, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

Hi, I don't consider the links to Pyrenees Guide and Pyrenees Tourism as inappropriate external links. Pyrenes Guide was long time ago in the Wikipedia Pyrenees page, and includes more than 1000 articles about the Pyrenees culture, villages, people, events, walking routes, etc...

Regarding Pyrenees Tourism, includes a guide, maps, forum, ski resorts, spas, a directory... and everything to help the person that is interested in the Pyrenees.

They are not spam websites, I think they are good information resources about the Pyrenees Mountains and that is why I included them as external links. Sorry for my English. Regards

These are the links:

The 2 links that have been removed are 2 of the most popular websites (type Pyrenees in google) for information about the pyrenees mountains, they offer free accurate information in English. I don't understand why they are considered spam, but a site about trekking holidays (that is now as external link) is not.

  • Totally agree, the sites are absolutely correct and not commercial at all, at least not as commercial as the other site mentioned. I have used theese sites many times. David 09:38, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Trivia removed[edit]

I took out the trivia. This was a reference to a really obscure sci-fi story. Not worth mentioning in this article, IMO. Steve Dufour 18:59, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Is it really an obscure sci-fi story, especially with so much focus on Scientology in the new lately? Here is the line from the trivia section which I found in the edit history as of 18:32, 24 April 2007. Is there any point trying to incorporate this back into the article?

If it has anything to do with "Scientology", something that is lower than mythology, ESPECIALLY get rid of it.74.163.43.71 (talk) 03:14, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

My edits[edit]

I just added some pictures that are more beautiful in my opinion. And, there are no Spanish spas mentioned which I did; and the Spanish political division should come first because 2/3 of the mountains are located in Spain. So it is NOT Spanish POV, and if you wish you might add pictures of the French Pyrenees instead of removing pictures from the Spanish side. --Gligan 12:05, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Pyrenées?[edit]

Who, supposedly, uses this quasi-French spelling in English? Looks like a typo, not a legitimate usage. Varlaam (talk) 20:39, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
