Description

Romanesque art and architecture.

Built in the 12th century, the Saint-Martin church is the oldest place of worship in Biarritz. It was rebuilt in the 16th century, but retained its simple plan, a nave with side aisles and no transepts. You can still see the original pillars and its original arcs.

The western facade is surmounted by a gabled steeple. The entrance has several arches and capitals sculpted with foliage. Under its ogival arches, resonates the music of the organ which was built at the beginning 20th century.
