Les Bouillouses

Les Bouillouses, the jewel in the Pyrénées Catalanes

A real paradise for nature lovers, whether they are just observing, or solitary or family walkers, or fishermen or seasoned walkers, the lake at Bouillouses and its banks (listed site since 24 June 1976) is one of the most beautiful natural reserves in the Pyrénées-Orientales.
During the summer, access to the site at Les Bouillouses is regulated.

Natural heritage



    Located between Dorres and Font-Romeu, the chaos of Targasonne offers a landscape of granite blocks exposed south-facing and set on a slope of about 1500 m above sea level. Composed of more than 1000 huge boulders, the chaos is dominated by the Themis solar power plant. It was in the chaos that the stonemasons of Dorres and Angoustrine took the granite they cut on the spot. Today, it is frequented by rock climbing adepts.
