The city is divided into two parts by the River Nive, namely, Petit Bayonne and Grand Bayonne; five bridges connect both sides.

The two towers and the steeple of the Saint Marie Cathedral tower above the rest of the buildings in Grand Bayonne. Though its exterior has not survived the assault of the weather, its stained glass and well-laid out lawns make it a worthwhile visit.

Musee Basque, showcasing the history and way of life of people from the Basque region, and Musee Bonnat, housing paintings by many renowned artists, are the two important museums in Petit Bayonne.

La citadelle which was built for the city’s protection now houses a botanical garden with a large collection of various plant species.

The Fetes Traditionelles starts on the first Wednesday of August. After 5 days of parades, music, dance, fireworks and other festivities, the fete ends with a bullfight on Sunday.
