"The Southwest Edge of France" Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port by hquittner

Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 103 photos

In the Basque Country

We visited the last small city in Southwest France. It was from here that the Pilgrim Road entered Spain on its way to Santiago de Campostela. It was from here , about 7 km further on at Roncevaux that Roland met his death. Of course nothing remains of that time but there are some late Gothic remains, 15C walls and many 16 and 17C buildings. It has become a quiet ski area.
