The Essential

Pau is the birthplace of Henry IV and wears its royal past with discretion; its château is a testament to this history. Located at the gates to the Pyrenees, it is steeped in nature, which lends life here its pleasant quality, and attracted the English in the 19C. Their contribution to the city was to instil a love of horses and build the sumptuous villas of the Trespoey neighbourhood. Today, Pau, capital of the historical Béarn province, is set to play its strong hand and distinguish itself with its dynamism.
