St Jean Pied de Port

A town with an impressive local heritage, not far from the campsite

The town of Saint Jean Pied de Port is located an hour from the campsite. This superbly colourful district is one you should definitely not miss during your stay in the Pyrénées Atlantiques area. During your holidays, be sure to head here and discover its impressive cultural heritage. Throughout its history, Saint Jean Pied de Port has had more than its fair share of visitors thanks to the pilgrims heading to Santiago de Compostela. The town was a stop-off point on this long journey. When you arrive there, you'll find a marvellous district with a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere all its own. You'll also see at first hand the significant influence of the pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela as you walk through its streets. You can pick up souvenirs from this town or tuck into a hearty meal in one of the town’s restaurants.
