Please read the ad carefully before asking questions whose answer is in the description ... Not serious, undecided or eager to visit to pass the time. For those who do not know, we went to Orthez, the former capital of Béarn. Orthez is a small town located between Pau (40mn) and Bayonne (50mn). Its foundation dates back to the Middle Ages and its walls have been crossed by some great events in the history of France. Right in the city center, the keep of Château Moncade bears witness to the ambition of Gaston Fébus, a lord of the 14th century, to make Béarn a Pyrenean state. The keep, which rises to 110 meters above sea level, is the highest point in the city. Going down rue Moncade, on one of the Chemins de Compostelle, 14 rue de l'Horloge is home to the courtyard of the Hôtel de la Lune, a beautiful 15th century medieval residence. Continue your Orthézienne stroll in the Bourg Vieux and push the door of the Jeanne d'Albret Museum to understand the influence of Protestantism on Béarn. After this visit, walk down the street to the Pont Vieux which proudly spans the Gave de Pau. Gaston Fébus made this bridge the emblem of the city. His motto: Touch it if you dare! Also to be discovered in Orthez: Maison Chrestia, a beautiful 18th century Béarn house which was inhabited by the poet Francis Jammes from 1897 to 1907. Walks in the countryside around Orthez From the castle, go down in the wood of Moncade by the path of Coudanne to reach the lake of Grècq (10 minutes on foot) or perhaps you will choose a small hike in the wood by Laqueyre? As a family, the Terra Aventura trail is an original walk that children will enjoy through Orthez. A real treasure hunt, it is about solving puzzles to discover the mystery word! (source ) Now visit this house of the 19th century at 5 minutes walk from downtown. 136m2 7 rooms and three bedrooms on two levels with a fully enclosed garden of 110m2.
