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.

It is worth to see it as it is very impressive from inside. The interior is amazing and with the guide and explanation the visit is very informative.

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!
