“On a clear day!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

You can see the mountains from the promenade of palm trees and manicured gardens. There are coffee shops, restaurants, bars and ice cream parlors along the way. You can extend your walk to the chateau gardens.

“wonderful promenade”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

The name says it all, but its still confusing, this is a one sided Boulevard that stretches less than a kilometer. Across the street from fancy apartments and bars, is a view into the Pyrenees which deserves a visit, a couple of drinks in one of the bars, and another stroll early in the morning.

Kids and big kids will enjoy the free ride on the finuncular (?) from the train station to the Blvd.

“The 'must do' walk”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

This walk provides a great outlook to the Pyrenees by walking from the commercial end of the CBD, past the war memorial into the old town.

“A lovely walk”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

It is necessary to choose the right day to really appreciate the view from this boulevard. Whilst till a lovely walk on a cloudy day it is the view of the Pyrenees that makes it special. There is underground parking close by and you are close to the centre for shopping.

“Beautiful walk and scenery.”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This walk has to be done on a clear day, fantastic views over the Pyrénées, all the cols are marked with a groove on the hand rail and simply line up with the lightning conductor on the tower, you can accurately see the height and the name of the col. Very interesting, and a nice little touch, often people miss this.
Plenty of bars, and a great home made ice cream shop.
Great views of the Grand Prix de Pau in May.
