Bayonne is a commune in south-west France located in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department. It is part of the region of Aquitaine. Bayonne lies at the junction of the rivers Adour and Nive and the facades of picturesque houses line the river bank like a concrete welcoming committee !

Bayonne has a rich and colourful history and the architecture is testament to the battles and leaders this city has encountered. The Romans, the Vikings and even the English have all made their mark on Bayonne. When Jewish refugees arrived here in the 1500s they brought with them new trades, of which chocolate-making was the most influential and is something the town is still famous for today. In the twentieth century, the Spanish Basques arrived in the city seeking refuge from the tyrant Franco. They brought with them bullfighting, and the bullring still remains to this day. Bayonne is a diverse and vibrant place with an ornate cathedral and well-preserved ramparts.

A two-day break
You can pack plenty into two days in Bayonne. On your first day, visit the bustling town centre and try some of the chocolate that this diverse city is so famous for. The chocolate is as much a part of the history as the fortifications that surround the city, and is something you can take home with you too. On your last day, head to Sainte Marie, the spectacular 14th century cathedral, and the historical ramparts built when Louis XIV was on the throne.

A week-long stay

With a whole week you can discover what it is that makes this place so enchanting and why so many communities have throughout history regarded it as a safe-haven. The Premiere Classe Hotel Bayonne is close to the town centre and therefore ideally situated for your exploration. The Musée Basque is probably the best ethnographic museum in the whole Basque Country ! There are numerous exhibits about the Basque way of life, including seafaring and handicraft. Take an afternoon stroll down to Bayonne's luscious botanical gardens on the banks of the river Nive.

A family holiday

A visit to the Caves of Isturitz, Oxocelhaya and Erberua is something that the whole family will enjoy. These caves date back to around 80,000 BC when they were used as a home. Prehistoric flutes were discovered in the caves and visitors can take a look at the original carvings and paintings inside.

Transport
Bayonne can be reached via the A63 and the A64 from Bordeaux and Spain. There is a good public transport service within the city, including trains and buses which serve the city and surrounding areas.

Gastronomy
Bayonne has a variety of restaurants and bistros serving a range of cuisines. A Table is a quaint bistro with delightful food and a great view of the River Nives. Dishes include chocolate fondant and Risotto Ocean, and there is a great selection of wines to choose from.

Events
The events and festivals here are regular and fun-filled. Chocolate Days is celebrated every year in May. During the event, chocolates are crafted in the streets and visitors are invited to try them. Chocohalics, children and those with a sweet tooth will love this festival. Les Fêtes de Bayonne is probably the most important festival of the year for the people of Bayonne. The town comes to life with bright colours, bulls and live music and people flock from all over France to see it.

Interesting fact
In 1829, Bayonne broke tradition and, instead of running the bulls through the streets (the “encierro”), they kept bullfighting to a designated area. This was the beginning of modern bullfighting in France. Bayonne is home to the biggest bullring in the south-west of France.
