By the 18th century Biarritz became a major attraction for the nobility due to the therapeutic properties of the ocean. The Empress Eugenie (wife of Napoleon III), Queen Victoria and Spain’s King Alfonoso XIII were some of the notable personalities who were seduced by this beautiful place.
Today Biarritz still evokes the old souvenirs of aristrocracy, while blending moden Art Deco elements and the appelation of the surf capital of Europe.
I’ve been living here for more than 1 year and I get a lot of pleasure from simply walking and observing the ocean, the architecture, the people and the changing seasons.
Today I am inviting you on a two-dimensional walk on the streets of Biarritz, in raw black and white.
These snippets exhibit just a tiny sliver of the beauty of this place. I highly recommend visiting.
