  • Lamartine who said, Pau has the most beautiful land view of the world and the most beautiful Naples view maritime world. In short, this famous Boulevard of the Pyrenees, you see from this terrace over a kilometre long, unforgettable show, 250 km from snowy and jagged mountains that "smile" their faces North toward you. In front of these peaks of 2000 to 3298 meters, waves of green hills, ancient moraines coolers, covered with thick forests and on which you will see some elegant mansions. In winter, the view is even more beautiful, especially after the passage of a snow disruption, it's a giant postcard! On the boulevard of the Pyrenees that goes from the splendid Castle of Henry IV to the romantic and huge municipal Casino, splendid buildings, all fancier one than the other, are placed on this balcony and offer to their inhabitants, this view of dream. Under the boulevard, the grassy slopes where mingle hydrangeas and palm trees, to the station and the famous circuit of formula 2 and 3, single circuit in France with Monaco city. To join the boulevard and therefore the city from the train station, a distinguished and ancient funicular is proposed. This boulevard is unique, but keep walking still more to the East, you will discover the Beaumont, of style English park and avenue Trespoey and its mythical mansions and homes of British style with their Park American and giant trees.
