A Day in Bayonne, Pays Basque, France

Photography of Bayonne City

Windows and Doors Photography

That was our last day of holidays in Pays Basque. We decided to stop on the road back to home in Bayonne. Such a nice city that we hadn’t time to visit before. These few hours spent walking around and having lunch on a terrasse made us want to come back as soon as possible.

Look at the colors, the architecture in the old city. Such a typical view from this beautiful part of France.

I won’t tell a lot of my blablah and let you enjoy some colorful views.

For the ones who follow our adventures on IG, you already have seen Little Vador (our puppy pug) next to this giant yellow dog. It was a funny meeting!

Hope you enjoyed to travel with my photography of Bayonne city center. I’ll be back with a food travel post very soon.

  • This is gorgeous! I can’t believe I get to visit there so soon! Such beautiful photos – I love the dog!

    • Yes!! You’ll be so near. And Spanish Pays Basque is also fantastic. I really want to go to Bilbao. xx

    Love it! You live in a very pretty part of the world Cathy – even if you are on holidays. Your photos are gorgeous xx

    • Thanks a lot Jo, in such a small country compared to yours, we are lucky to have so many type of landscapes and cities to see. But I still envy your wildlife and your coral barrier!!!! xx

  • Oh so much pretty! I wish we weren’t so far away!

  • Cathy, you make me want to jump on a plane! Gorgeous part of the world captured in your gorgeous pics. Thank you for sharing! Xx

    thank you for joining us for Photo Friday this week!

    • thank you Jen. See how many I had. Couldn’t share all on the 10/10 post. Now I dream of a special lense and camera. All those were taken with my 50mm. But as I don’t have a full frame camera it’s like a 85 mm. Not so good to get good image of architecture. xx cathy

  • Indeed I did enjoy it. Great captures of some lovely buildings.

    What a colorful place! I love the old buildings stacked so close together.

    • Thank you to stop on the blog. This is such an old city center full of history and old buildings. Those are my favorite too! xx cathy

  • Oh Cathy it’s so beautiful!! We don’t have anything this gorgeous in Australia. Such rich history and amazing architecture. I’m so jealous! Fabulous photos xxx

    • You are such a baby country! Maybe a teenage country? We are the old continent, the grand pas and grand mas countries! haha! We are the wise one! 😉 All our cities are full of work to rebuild those pieces of history! I want your nature and you can have my historical and architectural piece, exchange deal? xx cathy

  • Oh hun – these photos are just stunning. I want to go… soooo badly xx

  • Stunning!!!! I never tire of that stunning architecture and beautiful scenery. C’est magnifique. Jx

    • Yeah right! Same for me. But I still like modern architecture. Can’t compare of course to these beauties! xx

    I am so jealous! Those photos are just so beautiful!

  • What gorgeous colours and distinct architecture. I have a bit of a thing for doors and windows too!

    • Windows and doors are just the best! And they are easier to take in pictures than moving children! haha xx
