Le Rocher de la Vierge is one of the emblems of the Biarritz city. It is on the initiative of Napoleon III that this rock was drilled which was to be used as an anchorage point for a dam protecting a port refuge. It owes its current name to the statue de la Vierge built on its summit in 1865. It was to accomodate sailors returning to the port. The old wooden bridge, which links it to the shore, disappeared, giving a way for a steel footbridge resistant to the repeated attacks of the waves. This port dream by Napoleon III, it remains of this rock and its Lady without forgetting the impregnable views on the city! The promenade is highly recommended. You can not leave Biarritz without going on the foot of this virgin.
