that can make a big difference.  This was once a mountain, but drop by tiny drop, water has etched it into a natural and spectacular sandstone amphitheatre ….


The Orgues sur Tet, in the Pyrenees Orientales are a series of gigantic columns up to 14 metres high etched out a mountain over millennia.

The columns are called hoodoos, also known as chimney rocks because of the hard layer of rock that caps them off and gives some protection from the rain and erosion.

Other structures are known as the “organ pipes” for obvious reasons.

Enjoy the show!
