Photographer's Note

Le village de Saint Béat dans la haute vallée de la Garonne est un village typiquement pyrénéen, construit dans un défilé sur la route vers l'Espagne et chargé d'histoire depuis l'époque gallo-romaine.

La photo est prise depuis le château fort du XIIe siècle dominant le village, qui épouse la forme du méandre figé depuis des siècles. Au fond on distingue la frontière espagnole.

The village of Saint Béat in the high valley of Garonne is a typical pyrenean village, built in a narrow pass on the road to Spain and full of history from the Gallo-Roman age.

The picture was taken from the fortified castle of the XIIth century overlooking the village, which fits the meandering shape frozen for centuries. In the background we can see the spanish frontier.
