From May to October you can come across herds in this area that are guarded by large white mountain dogs called 'Patou'. Never walk straight through a herd but always with a big curve around it. These mountain dogs are originally from the Pyrenees and are used to protect herds. Stay calm when the dog comes to identify you and do not make sudden movements.
