The Roman town of Aire sur l’Adour, located in the Béarn region, whose name comes from Beneharnum is the capital city of the Venarni people and was destroyed by the Vikings in 840. You walk through pretty wooded hillsides and the wine area of the Tursan before entering the French Basque region with its distinct language and culture.
