The village of Fos (near St Beat and Bagneres de Luchon) was a frontier village trading in marble and wood and Le Pas de Moine (The Monk's Step) may have been the site of an old Dominican seminary. The village is sheltered by the Pyrenees and enjoys glorious sunny days in the spring summer and autumn amidst the picturesque snow covered peaks of the surrounding mountains.
