The old city is very nice and easy to do by feel. The way to go to the citadel is paved and steep but quite short. When you are on the summit there is a nice view on the campaign and on the vines. After you can go down by the same street or there’s some stairs which lead to the river close to the entrance of the old city. There’s a big place to park the car near the town council. I recommend this place.

A 17th c. fortress sitting on the highest point of the town. A somewhat steep uphill climb near Porte Saint-Jacques with amazing views of town and the Pyrenees.

dont stop there to see the citadelle, there is nothing special to see, and anyway the fort cant be visited at the top as it is a school now.
The lining of tourist shops sellings often goods done in bali.. ruined the view in the old town streets... and curiously, most of them have their credit card machine ´broken’ and only accepted cash.. ...

i prefered 100 times the more authentic « collonge la rouge » or turenne or espelette close by

My late arrival in the town gave me the chance to see only the Citadelle. Streets are small and narrow. The pavement looks old and keeps the history of old times.

On the morning we left early and the fog was covering the village. Once we hiked up the neighbourhood we were able to see parts of the village from above. Spring should be even more exciting to be there.

Buen camino!

Wonderful for a day trip from Bayonne. Picturesque and friendly village. Train crowded due to pilgrims but only a short hour through the valley amid greenery.

A beautiful citadelle with so much history. Very pretty cobbled streets, interesting shops and restaurants. The walk around the citadelle is very nice with some stunning views. Definitely worth a visit.
