Most French towns have a covered market called Les Halles. In Bayonne Les Halles form such an integral part of local life and are in such perfect harmony with the restoration of the old town that  it is hard to imagine that it was opened as recently as 1994.

The atmosphere here is lively and entertainment is guaranteed! On Saturday mornings the crowds jostle for space in and around the market.


The Baionan Kantuz volunteer choir has been bringing music to the market for the past 11 years. On the 4th Saturday of each month, the singing begins at 11am with a rehearsal in Place Lacarre followed by a performance in Les Halles from 11.30am to 12.30pm.
