The City of Art and History
This whole village was built around the medieval Pau Castle, a main
point of interest. Enjoy a nice historical walk along the streets and
gardens surrounding the castle, which are filled with examples of
16th-19th century architecture.
To take in the region's rich art and history, just pay a visit to the
Palais de Congres and the abundant museums, such as the Bearnais
Museum, Bernadotte Museum and the Fine Arts Museum.
Pau stands out for the glamour and comfort of its large hotels,
palaces and mansions, but without ever losing its heritage, which is
why it has been labelled the City of Art and History.
