The small town of Oloron-Sainte-Marie, located at the edge of the Aspe and Ossau valleys in Béarn, has a remarkable architectural heritage. This is evidenced by the Cathedral of St Mary, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the Way of St James, and its beautiful carved Romanesque doorway dating from the 12th century. The treasure, consisting of gold objects, woodwork and liturgical vestments, and the Baroque organ case also feature among the attractions of the building.

Also worth a look is the medieval district of Sainte-Croix with picturesque old houses and the charming Promenade Bellevue: as the name meaning "beautiful view" suggests, this walk offers a lovely panoramic view of the town skyline and the Pyrenees!

The hen in the pot: it is said that Henri IV would have pronounced the following sentence: "If God gives me life again, I will do that there will be no laborer in my Kingdom who has no means of having A hen in his pot. " The traditional recipe of the chicken in the pot consists of a hen accompanied by its vegetables, its stuffing and a coulis of tomato or a white sauce. Today, this emblematic dish of the Béarn is a festive recipe, which is shared with the family for great occasions and that you can taste in the best restaurants.
