The French commune of Bayonne is located in the south-west of the country and is at the confluence of the Adour and Nive rivers. At the time of the 1999 census Bayonne had a population of 178,965 inhabitants, and now, along with such communes as Biarritz and Anglet, it is part of an urban area known as the ‘Agglomération Côte Basque-Adour’. Bayonne has both a rich history and commercial past that enchants visitors.
The city is in a great location, within the Basque Country and seeping into Spain. This gave it a head start into the world of commerce. With the shifting of power towards Paris in the mid-19th century, Bayonne suffered. However, 1854 saw the development of rail links with the capital bring industrialisation to this commune. Bayonne is a city that boasts a real atmosphere. This is epitomised in the evenings when it really comes alive.
