Sauveterre-de-Béarn

Enchantingly picturesque, the Romanesque-turning-into-Gothic church here crowns a hill from which unfolds a storybook vista—in the foreground is a postcard-perfect group of buildings—the Gave d'Oloron, the fortified 12th-century drawbridge, the lovely Montréal Tower, while the Pyrénées rise romantically in the distance. You cannot come to this region and miss this town.
