La Pierre-Saint-Martin

La Pierre-Saint-Martin is a ski station on the French Spanish border in the French department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques. It is near the town of Arrete. It was crossed by stage 16 of Le Tour de France in 2007. The stage was from Ortez to Col d’Aubisque. Mauricio Soler of Columbia was the first rider over the summit. From Arrete the climb is 25.8km long @ 5.7% and climbs 1466 metres to the summit at 1800m altitude. Along with the ski station and now Le Tour de France the area is well known for it caves, which are among the largest and most extensive in the world. They are known to extend to several kilometres in length and one has a cavern so large, 245 metres in diameter and 194 metres high, it is said that Notre Dame Cathedral could fit in it 6 times. It is so large, that a hot-air balloon has been flown inside.
