Opened in 1976. It is a more than 3 km tunnel on 1800m over sea level.



Without it... 100 km direct line from Portalet border to Les border and about 300 km in Spain or 200 km in France between both borders.

Upside down... all valleys from that mountain have at least one waterfall but in the pictures I posted the only one appears is the Gavarnie waterfall, located in France, not in Spain.

And... just in the middle of Ordesa and Gavarnie valleys we have this "international border".

It could be one of the most famous because smuggling in both directions.

Smugglers made the journey while the night... and they had to cross the way with iron sticks I posted to get there in the nigh.

Spanish police just controlled access to the valley. It was easy.

French police used to stay hidden after the natural wall... and arrest anyone who crosses the border there. It was very easy, even on the night, to control the area from several points in the French side.

Take 2 steps forward and you'll see 3 different seasons (autumn/fall, spring or summer, and winter).
Yeahh, one of the longest E-road in Europe

E75

Curious photo.

In the case of Portugal/Spain it is impossible to have that photo as well as the two "coast borders" are separated by rivers, so a bridge (in the south it is a very nice bridge) is the border.

Here is an interesting border road. M15 (E87) main road in Ukraine goes for 7 km on the teritory of Rep. of Moldova. How is the situation there? I see a (border?) check-point where this road meets the road to Palanca (MD).

The scenery is much nicer at the northern end though, the Spanish side really looks beautiful from Caminha

It seems that Palanca territory was already ceded by Moldova to Ukraine, in a very strange and controversial exchange of territories .
We're talking about 7,7km of the Odesa-Reni highway and the land in the nearby. See here.

International bridge in the motorway Faro-Huelva

Left: Portugal, Right: Spain




In the Spanish side, closed to the border there is a "Parador" (luxurious hotel, property of the Government), which are similar to the Pousadas.
This is its page:

http://www.parador.es/es/tratarFicha...do?parador=012

In the part of photos there are someones taken from the hotel where it appears the bridge (cloooosed) and the end of the Guadiana into the Atlantic

And... 700 km away from the last photo, the border at Caminha/A Guarda.

This photo is taken from Portugal. It appears on the left, the Atlantic ocean and on the other side, Spain.

image hosted on flickr


First international bridge is a little far away than on the south.

And... in the Spanish side there is also a Parador (at Tui)

http://www.parador.es/es/tratarFicha...do?parador=084

Photo of that hotel, the river and the Portuguese side




As I said, there are no "beach border" between Spain and Portugal.

Between Spain and France, the Atlantic border is also on a river, similar to Portugal. The Mediterranean border isn't... but it is not a "beach border" because the border line is on a cliff...
