    Toulouse to Huesca and al.

    by gwened Written Jan 17, 2013

    done it many times one of my routes from to France/Spain all my life. The roads today are very good thanks to the EU, you are use to driving,you should not have any problems.

    the easist way is to go out of Tolouse towards Muret on the A64, then here you have a choice if you go straight down you will go to community or county roads and indeed very scenic over mountains passes. HOwever will not see much than natural beauty.

    Instead continue on A64 to Pau, and there take the N134 ,you will see signs for Zaragoza (thats the good signs to follow) go over Oloron Sainte-MArie then ,the pass de Somport into Spain you will pass Jaca and then Huesca. Both Pau and Jaca are nice town to visit too. takes over 5h drive, you can do better using
    www.viamichelin.com than google and in Spain use guiarepsol
    http://www.guiarepsol.com/es_en/home/

    hooe it helps, beautiful country ,happy motoring
