French side of the Brèche de...
French side of the Brèche de Roland (2807m). The walls of this breach are 100m high, but remarkably thin. You can actually see people standing in the breach. The brèche offers a nice doorway to Spain, with nice views of the national park of Ordesa.

Actually it looks more like he was throwing dynamite around :-)

La Brecha de Roland / Brèche de Roland is a 100 x 40 m / 328 x 431 ft breach. The legend says that the brave Roland made it with his sword.



It's really an amazing gap, believe me.

That happened when he left the Rocesvalles battle, he was wounded.



Remind that it's only a legend
