We start at the top : Sarrance is on the road to Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, on the Via Tolosane and then has a religious heritage to discover, such as a 17th century cloister and a late 18th century chapel. In the town, the Monastery of Sarrance (Saint-Norbert) is a haven of peace that regularly welcomes the faithful. There is also the Aspe Valley ecomuseum, to learn more about local customs and life in this pleasant corner of Béarn.
Laruns is a must visit ! It is crossed by the Gave d'Ossau and only 40 km from Pau, it is a popular destination for summer weekends. Discover its pretty alleys, with quality built heritage. Laruns is the host of a big festival on August 15, which celebrates the Béarnaise culture. In the village, admire the Chapel of Gabas, the Saint Pierreu church, the small wash houses and fountains. The old houses as well as the station, date from the period of hydrotherapy, where in the XIXth century, the Pyrenean destinations were very famous. Laruns is the starting point for several hikes, including reaching Lake Bious-Artigues (1400m) and its changing colors according to the seasons and the weather. It is also a sporting place where you can go canyoning, and rent a mountain bike to tackle the small paths.
