Royal City

On the northern edge of the Pyrénées, Pau is the perfect base to explore the mountains and ride the Funiculaire de Pau, a unique historic funicular railway that links the city center and Boulevard des Pyrénées to the railway station Gare de Pau. "Pau has the world's most beautiful view of the earth just as Naples has the most beautiful view of the sea," wrote French writer and poet Alphonse de Lamartine. The city is 100 km (62 mi) from the Atlantic Ocean and 50 km (31 mi) from the Pyrénées Mountains and Spain with an exceptional climate that lends itself to outdoor exploration.
