What a wonderful surprise. The grounds were beautiful. The chapel is very nice and well maintained. It is not large so it is not a long stop but well worth finding and seeing.

Took some finding and then when we found the entrance found it is only open a few hours a week at present which was disappointing as the outside looks very different and highly detailed

Built by Eugenia wife of Napoleon III this is a gem. Beautifully decorated inside. Sad to see tiles fallen off outside. Bust of Eugenia in the garden. Well worth a visit.

Is amazingly well preserved and in both inside and outside, inside is unreal the well preserved it is and if you have visited Mexico here you will see Virgin of Guadalupe as is painted in the ceiling of the church

We would not have reached here had it not been for guidance by our hosts who had been to Biarritz from Caumont. It is worth engaging a guide to understand the history and the beauty of the Chapel.

The diverse cultures and the architecture that come together are indeed worth studying.

This is a "must see", otherwise you will miss out on French architecture. When I used to travel to France, Biarritz was an important stop; I had a picture of me bathing in the sea!

This little gem of a Chapel was commissioned by Empress Eugenie who was married to Napoleon 3rd.
It has some mosaics reminiscent of Alhambra in Spain, Byzantine and Roman architecture and decorations.
We happily paid for the tour because there was a Mexican connection to the black Virgin of Guadalupe. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.
You need to be there at 2.30 on a Thursday or Saturday in June.
