Balade patrimoine Nay : une bastide à l'épreuve de l'industrie

This heritage trail through the bastide (medieval new town) of Nay, between Bearn and Bigorre, allows you to discover the original fortified town at your own pace. Nay became so industrialised that it was given the nickname of Little Manchester in the 19th century. A short walk in town during which you’ll discover a fortified town built to a perfect plan, with its central square lined with arches and its grid pattern streets towered over by the church. To experience the atmosphere of the fairs that used to take place here, it is better to do the circuit on market day, Tuesday or Saturday - and take a shopping basket with you!
