Bayonne has strong policies on heritage and culture and was officially recognised as a « Town of Art & History » in 2012. This award from the French governement comes in recognition of 2,000 years of history and rich heritage.
Bayonne takes you on a journey through the ages from the Gothic cathedral – a World Heritage Site since 1998 as part of the French Pilgrim Routes of Santiago de Compostela – to the old town restoration project, the ramparts, the cloister and the Château-Vieux. You can really travel back in time !
