Church in Bidart

The Sainte Marie Church in Bidart dates from the 16th century

It has wooden galleries overlooking the nave, an 18th century altar and a beautiful statue of St Jacques in pilgrim's costume.
The stunning Oriental-style baptismal font was given by Queen Natalie of Serbia, who retired in Bidart during her conversion to Catholicism.
The church often hosts choral Basque songs.
