The congress will take place in Pau, France

Pau benefits from an exceptional geographical location, between the Atlantic ocean (100 km / 62 mi) and the majestic Pyrenees’ mountains (50 km / 31 mi). This position gives it a striking panorama across the mountain range of the Pyrenees especially from its landmark “Boulevard des Pyrenees”, as well as the hillsides of Jurançon. According to Alphonse de Lamartine, “Pau has the world’s most beautiful view of the earth just as Naples has the most beautiful view of the sea”. This ancient royal city is serving as the captivating capital of the Béarn since 1464. This could explain why a town citizen is feeling more “Béarnais” than French!.
