If you feel like exploring the natural, open spaces of the Pays basque region, a good place to start would be la Barthe d'Ilbaritz and its trail, where you can learn about its flora and fauna. Situated just outside town, in a humid area (Barthe), you will find around ten plots of land full of different plants, covering a distance of 1.5km. Small stands in front of the plants educate the visitor on each family, the ecosystem and the main uses of each kind of plant. Entrance is free of charge and there's someone on hand to help you out with additional information but only at certain periods of the year. The only problem is that it's not far from the RN263, so it tends to be a little noisy.
Allow between 30 and 60 minutes to get round the place. The walk itself is not difficulty, but take along some waterproof shoes if it's been raining. Admission:
