Tourist guide of the Landes coast
Between natural heritage and architectural heritage, the Landes have several must-see sites to visit during your stay. From north to south of the Silver Coast to the inland, varied landscapes and towns or villages of character are worth seeing: the seaside Hossegor to which villas Basco-Landes built in-between -war give a unique charm; the spa town of Dax and its neo-Greek Classical cathedral; the Pilat dune, the highest dune in Europe; the city of Arcachon, its harbor, its fishing district, its retro pier and its picturesque villas; the breathtaking panorama of the tip of Cap Ferret; the Landes ponds, Biscarrosse and Parentis, but also Cazaux and Sanguinet or Aurelheilhan; the medieval village of La Bastide-d’Armagnac; or the lighthouse of Contis. The ecomuseum of Marquèze is the must visit site to learn more about the Landes culture, its history, traditions and know-how.
In this territory where nature is admired, with the dune of Pyla or the birds of the Arcachon basin, culture lovers will not be left behind with tours rich in history like Bordeaux or the many castles that extend in the vineyards of the Médoc.
