Pau : Michelin's recommendations
Pau is the birthplace of Henri IV and the most elegant city on the Pyrenees border. Although not as grand as Versailles, it wears its royal past in a discreet and refined manner, with the castle as its cornerstone. Pau is very keen on athletic, intellectual and cultural pursuits, a legacy from its days as a British colony.
