Pau The Essential
Recommended
Pau is the birthplace of Henri IV and wears its royal past in a discreet and refined manner, as shown by this château. Located at the gates to the Pyrenees, it is steeped in nature, which lend life here its pleasant quality, as sought by the English in the 19C. Their contribution to the city was a love of horses and the sumptuous villas of the Trespoey neighbourhood. Today, with its "Horizons Palois" project, Pau is set to play its trump card and distinguish itself with dynamism.
