Bayonne, capital of chocolate

Between the Adour and the Nive, Bayonne is part of the French Basque country. A city known and recognized for its dynamism, it is also an important stage of the path to Santiago de Compostela.

Stamped with the label “city of art and history”, the historical monuments are numerous and of high quality. You will find its Gothic cathedral which is part of the world heritage of humanity, its ramparts, its cloister, its Basque museum, or its old castle.

This city of Aquitaine, commercial and partly pedestrian, will delight you with its 900 shops offering traditional Basque products such as its famous ham, household linen or its famous chocolate. As the gastronomic capital, Bayonne is the destination of gourmets and the curious.

What would Bayonne be without sport? The hymn of the pena baiona for its valiant rugby players will train you but you will also have the opportunity to celebrate other sports such as pelota or rowing.

A festive and jovial city, this little corner of paradise has a full calendar of events for the most festive among you: ham fair, concerts and shows in the bullring, bullfights, carnivals and its famous bayonne festivals.
