Bayonne
The Essential
Recommended
Bayonne is above all an atmosphere, with its bodegas the focal point of its nightlife and a great place to sample Basque hospitality. The famous Fêtes de Bayonne, in late July, are the high point in the calendar. Bayonne is also about art and history, illustrated by its tall houses with oxblood red half-timbering in the old town, which is divided into three areas around the Nive River and Adour River: Petit Bayonne, Grand Bayonne and the St Esprit Quarter. The city is also the place of origin of chocolate-making in France.
