The frontier post in October

The Col du Pourtalet, El Portalet or Portalet d'Aneu is a mountain pass and border crossing in the Pyrenees, between France and Spain. The pass reaches an altitude of 1,794 m (5,890 ft), and links the Ossau and Tena valleys.[1][2]

The road across the pass is known as the A-136 on the Spanish side, and links to Biescas and Huesca. On the French side the D934 road connects the pass to the towns of Laruns, Oloron-Sainte-Marie and Pau. The pass is usually closed by snow from late October to late May.[1][2]

The French side of the pass falls within the commune of Laruns in the département of Pyrénées-Atlantiques, whilst the Spanish side is within the municipality of Sallent de Gállego within the province of Huesca.
