Centre Nautique de Soeix

Reviewed By Peneverdant - Preston, United Kingdom

Very well equipped and organised for casual tourists,with friendly and efficient supervisors. Not the most challenging stretch of water, especially as we were there when river levels were quite low.

Lindt Chocolate Factory

Not a factory tour or anything similar, but a factory outlet shop selling lots of cheap short-dated Lindt stock. Pop in if you like chocolate!

Quartier de la Cathedrale Sainte-Marie

Reviewed By martinezcm - Kansas City, Missouri

Charming quartier centered on her famous Cathedral with that outstanding bell tower protecting that jewel of her portico with so well preserved figures where even the eyes of the "kings" are still preserved. The well preserved grounds and shops and cafe
add to its relaxing allure

Eglise Sainte-Croix d'Oloron

Reviewed By Living_our_Dream - Travelling Europe

Another over-enthusiastic late 19th/early 20th C renovation which left a church devoid of its original character; even worse than at the Cathedral.

Beautifully restored villa that is now a museum all about the Pyrenees and Oloron Sainte Marie - the history, the architecture, the culture as well as the natural world. With a fun booklet for kids, and everything in French, English and Spanish - really worth a visit.

Maison du Patrimoine

Reviewed By 862michelt - Lyon, France

La Maison du Patrimoine présente à travers ses expositions permanentes et temporaires l’histoire et les traditions de la ville d’Oloron Sainte-Marie.
Elle présente plusieurs sections : archéologie et histoire de la ville depuis la préhistoire jusqu'au Mérovingiens en passant par les Romains.
Une cuisine typique béarnaise est joliment reconstituée.
A l'étage une très riche exposition présente la tragique histoire du camp de concentration de Gurs.
Nous avons particulièrement apprécié l'enthousiasme du jeune bénévole qui nous a accueilli.
