Nay Things to Do: 11 reviews and 50 photos
The river in Nay is the Gave de Pau ; there is a walking or biking track on its left (west) bank. We can see where the water was turned away to give hydraulic energy to the old mills and factories. It is now a very quiet place with small houses and gardens along and lots of individual small bridges for each house.
I suggest to start the short walk from the bridge, and first go a few metres downstream to look at a salmon ladder; these were build because in dry season the factories took almost all water and the salmons did not have enough water to migrate up. On the bridge we have a view over the Pyrenees with the pic de Gabizos.
Then walk past the fronton(the pink wall for Basque pelota) and just enjoy the water and the light.
