“boulevard des pyrenees view”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

first to reach the boulevard from the train station you take the finuculaire or tramway that takes you up to the boulevard. then you can admire the beautiful view of the Pyrenees mountains.. breathtaking ! stroll to the heart of the city and enjoy a little coffee by the terrace of one of the many cafes with lots of fresh Chantilly or fresh cream... enjoy!

“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

This is a must see. If you are in Pau or the surrounding area, take a special trip to walk along the boulevard. I find it is best seen in the early morning light in the summer. Heat haze and poor weather can obstruct the view of the mountains but on a clear day there isn't a better place to be.

Wonder from Parc Beaumont to the old town and stop at a couple of cafe bars on route to quench your thirst and take in the view. There are benches dotted along so you could spend the day there admiring the view if you wished.

Living at the end of the Boulevard, I must have walked it a hundred times, but everyday I am amazed by its beauty.

If you are down by the station, don't worry about the walk, take the funiculaire.

“A pleasant walk.”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

This is a must if you are visiting Pau. There are many seats along the way should you want sit and just drink in the views of the Pyrenees. At the end of Boulevard is King Henry 1V Castle another worthy place to visit.

“For a nice and relaxing walk.”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

We spent a day in Pau town and were more than happy to enjoy the view over the snowy Pyrenees. We had a clear weather allowing us to see most of the local mountains.

Perfect for a few relaxing moments before or after Pau's Castle.

“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.
