Skiing in Font Romeu
As you wind your way up in to Font Romeu, do look out for the Heliodysée which is the helix shaped building covered in glass - it is a research station looking into solar power and how to extract energy from the sun. With 2,750 hours of sunshine each year, the decision was taken that this was an ideal location for research. Visits can be arranged - see the Doing More tab and select Tourist information.
Font-Romeu is stunning and is surrounded by towering peaks that rise to 2900 meters - it claims to be the sunniest in France......but there are a few that claim that!
