Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port

Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port is a lovely town on the pilgrim route Camino de Santiago, and is on the border of Spain in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques. There was a citadel high on the hill where they have turned the surrounding moat into basketball courts! It was getting late the evening we arrived in town, so we ate french fries and drank wine at a café on the square. The brightly striped tablecloth reminded me that we were in the Basque region - such wonderful stripes everywhere!
