The bridges which span the Gaves d'Aspe and Gave d'Ossau offer very original views of the architecture of the buildings very typical of the region.

The Sainte Marie district is built around the magnificent Romanesque cathedral, listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.

The Notre Dame district is very lively during the Friday market!

The beret or Basque fabric weaving factories and the chocolate factory are also worth a little detour.

The network of rivers is ideal for trout and salmon fishing and rafting on the Gaves d'Aspe or Oloron.

The church of the Saint Blaise Hospital, the cloister of Sarrance or the typical village of Monein and its church with its inverted boat hull frame, are examples of the rich Béarnais cultural heritage .

The Gurs Camp Memorial reminds us in a very factual way of the dark sides of the Second World War.

These are the starting points for magnificent hikes in the Aspe Valley or the Ossau Valley accessible to beginners to more experienced hikers. The bikeor the motorbike remains an extraordinary way to travel the small ""bucolic"" roads of Haut-Béarn!
