Discover the City of Winter through the colours used in architecture and landscape décor, a real palette at the service of emotions… The Moorish Park will offer you a quiet corner of greenery that overlooks the city… Nestle in its gaze scene to enjoy a unique panorama of the Arcachon Basin.

In spring, the Pereire and Abatilles districts will surprise you with its colours. Discover The Pereire Park, its 41 hectares, and its thousands of pine trees that give it such a special look. Discover the residential area of Les Abatilles, as well as the only mineral water source of the Gironde, the Sainte Anne des Abatilles spring.

During the summer heat, the beaches will open their doors to you. Take the time to stroll downtown, or walk the streets with the many bike paths. At its heart is a huge building, the Basilica of Notre Dame, whose ornaments and decorations are as rich on the outside as they are on the inside.

In the autumn, head to the saint-Ferdinand and Aiguillon districts, which contain fishing and recreational harbours. You will be able to contemplate the typical nautical buildings of the Basin: pinnacles, sailing boats or motorboats…
