    New exhibits every 4 months. The natural museum is small (compared let's say to the one in Toulouse). But the settings are cool (by the river along the river). We keep going back....

    A pretty big park that I took great pleasure in walking. far from everything, the park is more or less sheltered from noise (the highway is never far) but allows to see beautiful birds. There are many streams inside the park which is bordered by the Nive river.

    A very short distance from the city center of Bayonne, a haven of peace and discovery of our beautiful nature. During migration there are observatories for bird watching. Friendly welcome, public toilet, educational museum for young children, in short, an essential stopover.

    accueil très sympathique, balade très agréable; lieu insolite, près de la ville. Par contre, c'est absolument mal indiqué.
