The village of Monein, sys itself it is in the heart of Bearn! It is a nice village , located 30 km West of Pau, direction Mourenx, (or Bayonne, and turn left after 20 km), counting 4000 inhabitants. The village itself is picturesque but the most important features there are the gothic St Girons church and that it is located in the heart of the Jurançon wine production area, and probably the best one.
The main picture shows the village from the vineyards located on hills South of the village, and the impressive church is also seen here from the main street (picture 2). Picture 3 shows it is a rather quiet place and old constructions (picture 4) like here the city hall arcades, are spread over the village, and some houses are nicely decorated, even quite soberly (picture 5).
