I arrived at the esplanade. In front of me a footbridge streches into the sea,to a rocky islet that takes its name from the the statue crowning it. Its said, that this statue protected the sailors and fishers in the Bay of Biscay.
The designer of the Eiffle Tower supervised the construction of the footbridge. The walk out to the edge of of the rock,with crashing surf on both sides,is the most dramatic in Biarritz. From here i could see to the south,all the way to the mountains of the Spanish Basque country.
