Everyone at their own pace
Did you know?
The patou, that big white sheepdog, is not only the mascot of Saint-Lary! it’s also the proud guardian of the herds in the mountain pastures. If you see him, don’t be fooled by his teddy bear-like appearance: the patou is very protective of his flocks.
How to behave?
Stay calm, don’t shout, don’t run. Speak calmly to announce your presence and avoid crossing the herd, go around it if possible!
Our most beautiful walks
To each his own! There’s no shortage of hiking trails around Saint-Lary, which is one of the gateways to the Pyrenees National Park and the Néouvielle Nature Reserve.

There are pastoral areas where you can bring your dog, but it must be kept on a leash.
In nature reserves and national parks dogs are prohibited.
