Pau provokes romantic feelings - it nuzzles up against the green hills of the pyrenees and can‘t get rid of it‘s nostalgic character, which is composed by the ravishingly beautiful church and the old frame houses. Palmtrees and oleanders line the streets, geraniums bloom between the bricks, the buildings are decorated with flower baskets. It‘s a peaceful place, where you can enjoy the silence in charming little cafés and restaurants.
Even though Pau is quite small with it‘s 570 inhabitants, nothing is missing - there‘s a doctor, a pharmacy, a school and several corner shops. And if you want a bit of hustle and bustle, it‘s only a short hop to Figueres and the sunny coast.
