    • Suspended 150 m above the void, the Holzarté bridge is the most spectacular of all you can meet between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean! Accessible after a hike of about an hour, the suspension bridge jumps over 70 m into the canyon of Olhadubi to reach the other bank. The panorama is breathtaking, you don't have to be dizzy to cross so much you have the impression of walking in a vacuum.

      History: The suspension bridge is a technical work which dates from 1920. It was built by Italian workers who were employed in the workshops of the Lombardi Morello steelworks in Tardets. It allowed lumberjacks to cross the other bank and quickly reach the cutting sites installed in the surrounding forests.

      Restored in 2010 after the damage caused by the Xynthia storm, it is now completely secure, to the delight of hikers. You will thus appreciate a grandiose landscape, formed by torrents for millennia, in the limestone of the Pyrenean massif.

    Great Great and free. A very steep climb, for the sportif. I loved it, would highly recommend it!

    Me and my wife got attacked verbally on the overcrowded parking lot for wearing masks. We were asked if the "maçons" meaning construction workers were coming in a bad tone. Nobody adheres to any covid19 protective measure here. A risky visit on a narrow trail. Not recommended during the 2020 pandemic.

    Great view from this impressive suspension bridge. The path up from the car park can get really busy in the summer so I'd suggest using the other longer route (5.5hrs) that traverses in from Larrau. Its well worth the extra effort and the views are spectacular.
