Pilgrims, merchants and inhabitants of the town have rubbed shoulders for centuries. Simple saved at the beginning, Sauveterre-de-Béarn became a rich medieval city, one of the main towns of Béarn itself, and enjoyed great prosperity thanks in particular to two great viscounts of Béarn, Gaston VII Moncade in the 13th century and Gaston III of Foix Béarn (or Fébus) in the 14th century.
    From this rich past, it preciously and proudly preserves many fortifications and listed sites which, in contact with rich (and exotic) vegetation, offer a real postcard image. The beauty of the site, especially on the banks of the gave, is accompanied by a very special atmosphere, conducive to meditation for some, meditation for others.
