A tunnel dug into the rock is due to Napoleon III, the Virgin on its summit is a celebration of the fishermen returned safely after a storm and the bridge was designed by Gustave Eiffel.
The view is superb!
On one side the Grande Plage beach and the other Basque Coast with the Pyrenees on the horizon ...
The Port des Pêcheurs (fishing port) with its "crampottes" little houses constructed on the back face in the cliff. Today some of them are still used by fishermen while others have Restaurants and Diving schools ................
If the beach is a bit too hectic for you, why not take a stroll and relax on all the various points (seats are fitted) in the sunshine, take in the sea air, listen to the sound of the surf and waves crashing on the rocks below............
The villa Belza was built in the late 19th century.
The name "Belza," which means black in Basque, the architecture with its
medieval style tower and its location near the "Devil's Bridge", all
contribute to make the villa a place full of mysteries.
If walls could talk !! It was the setting for films, a Russian cabaret with memorable parties, it has survived two fires and after being neglected it was restored and divided into apartments.
