Castle Tourist Spot
See where the Sun King awaited his bride at Maison Louis XIV. While it wasn't actually the king's house, it was where Louis XIV stayed in 1660 while waiting for the Infanta Maria Theresa to arrive from Spain. Still owned by the same family who built it, the house is open to the public and features an extensive collection of art and artifacts from the 17th century. Note that tour guides may speak limited English, but an English text supplements the visit.

  • historic place where everything remained as it was! looks like a real time machine, I came specially to visit it!  more »
  • Located in the main square, Louis XIV's house is an interesting building to see. On Sundays, you can enjoy the music of a local Basque orchestra in this plaza.  more »
  • This is an exceptionally beautiful and architecturally interesting building, which functions as city hall for the town. It is located on a beautiful square with shading trees and bars. A must see!  more »

  • Nice spot
  • Bon service
  • Sublime
  • No interest. Louis 14 spent 40 days there... Still inhabited house so we visit that 4 parts! The visit is not free you must keep pace with the guide: no possibility to look at each piece in detail, must move forward in the other. Banned pictures. Very disappointing.

  • Site of the passage of Louis XIV at his marriage with the Infanta Marie Thérèse of Spain in 1660. A very well done tour and an exceptional home and very well kept by owners whose a descendant still lives there.
