Transportation in Pau

by gigi&joy

Can anyone tell me how to travel from the Pau Airport to the Pau train station?
I am travelling to Lourdes and the connections are very bad for me. I have traveled throughout France many times, but don't know where to locate this information. Any help would be appreciated. Please E-mail me at Aruhito@aol.com
Thank You.

Re: Transportation in Pau

by qaminari

Firstly, please don't ask people to e-mail you with this sort of information, the whole point of a site like this is for others to benefit from the answers in case they have similar questions!
Secondly, the information about buses between the airport and station (40 mins) is on Pau Airport's website: if you are arriving by the Ryanair flight at 09:15 at least, you will be fine, see http://www.pau.aeroport.fr/acces/navettes.php.
At any other time, you will probably have to take a taxi.
Pau to Lourdes only takes 30 minutes but it is true that the connections aren't great as you will probably miss the 10:41 (arr. 11:10), and the next trains aren't till 13:18 (arr. 13:47: TGV) and 13:41 (arr. 14:12)
A shared taxi/minibus all the way from Pau Airport to Lourdes should cost around €40 with www.alliance-taxis-lourdes.com.

I'.m not sure where you would be travelling from, but there is an airport at Tarbes which is closer to Lourdes if that is your main destination.

Re: Transportation in Pau

by frenchfrank

Just take the navette (airport bus) to Place de Clemenceau which takes about 15-20 minutes. It's then a 5 minute walk across the square south to the Boulevard des Pyrenees. Turn right and passing the Irish bar, Australian bar, etc. taking in the great view of the mountains, you will reach the funicular railway on your left. Descend to the bottom - it's free - and opposite you is the railway station.

Travel Tips for Pau

Grand prix de Pau historique: the old roadsters.

by kokoryko

If I had to tell which car I like the most, these ones would be my choice; the roadsters from the sixties like the Ferrari on the main picture , but the other ones on pictures 2 and 3 look very nice; they also make a lot of noise, but I have a little preference for them because they look so old-fashioned but also so powerful, compared to the cars with the engines at the back.
And there are much older cars, which I did not see compete like the Ferrari on picture 4 and this GT car looks nice as well ( picture 5)

Free where access is allowed or 10-12 Euros for access to the paddocks or galleries; 17 Euros for the week end.

Cauterets.

by kokoryko

Cauterets is an old thermal resort of the Western Pyrenees, where the healing properties of the waters (rheumatology, lungs diseases) are known since the Roman Empire. It developed since the 19th century and has thousands of visitors each year for its curative establishments.
In winter, ski is of course the main activity, with two ski domains: Cirque du Lys, and Pont d’Espagne.
Cirque du Lys has high and rather easy downhill tracks; top of the tracks is at 2500m and from there you can enjoy a round the horizon view from Balaitous to the south, Pic du Midi d’Ossau to the West, foothills and plains to the North and the superb Vignemale to the East.
All skiing equipment can be hired in Cauterets.
Visit the website in the links for accommodation and places to visit in Cauterets; I only go for skiing here, or in summer, it can be the base for hikes and treks to the Vignemale (highest peak of the French Pyrenees: 3298m).
Ski: a cable car lifts you from the village to the Cirque du Lys; there, ski lifts get you to the tracks; mostly north and east facing tracks: best ski in the morning.
rates: 27 E /day, 140 E/week; half day, kids or students rates available.

More About Paintings in the Musee des Beaux-Arts

by hquittner

There are several Art Museums worth visiting in Southwest France if you are spending an extended time here. Above all others is the Musee des Augustins in Toulouse. Only three other general examples are also of interest in the area: in Montpellier, Pau and Agen. In addition there are three other visits that should be considered, first to see the Toulouse-Lautrec works in Albi, the works of Ingres in Montauban and those of Rigaud in Perpignan where there are also paintings and statues by Maillol. In Pau there are a few works worth spending time over beyond the great Degas masterpiece. There is a fine El Greco, an unexpected work by Mary Casset, a group of three works by Rubens including a detailed preparation painting for a giant Last Judgement, a fine painting by Rigaud and a Jan Brueghel's as well as a few other fine French works.

Musée Bernadotte

by mikey_e

The Musée Bernadotte is dedicated to Jean-Baptiste Jules Bernadotte. Even now, you probably are still wondering why there is a museum dedicated to someone about whom you have never heard. In fact, Jean-Baptiste Jules Bernadotte later became Marshall of France and, in 1818, the King of Sweden. In fact, he is the first member of the current royal house to have sat on the Swedish Throne. This, then, explains the presence of the Swedish flag at the entrance to the Museum. I didn't go into the Museum (it was closed, despite the fact that I was there during the opening hours), so I cannot say anything about the contents of the museum or its significance. I believe that the building is the same one in which Bernadotte was born and raised, and it includes some good examples of regional architecture.

The famous Cathedral of Lescar (2)

by kokoryko

The most remarkable elements of the cathedral of Lescar are inside.
Mosaics are a rarity in churches, but here are mosaics, with some non-religious subjects. Typical middle age face expression of the hunter on picture 1, the other hunter, a running archer, on picture 2, all this is not very religious.
The animals on the other pictures are very impressive. Nobody knows who made these mosaics, and I am not sure about what they are supposed to represent, but in the choir of the church, they have a strange ”presence”.
A bronze plate in the ship states that some kings of Navarre are buried in the cathedral, among them, the grand parents of Henri IV.
