The tribute of the three cows is a traditional meeting at 10am every July 13th atop the PyrenÉes Mountains where the border stone of Ernaz sits between Spain and France.

The tradition of the tribute has survived to this day and is a good reason for a celebratory feast and goodwill between the countries.
