Sitting in the highest point of Petit Bayonne you will find the  Château-Neuf (“new castle”) built in the 15th century by Charles IV. This massive building now belongs to the university and is unfortunately closed to the public.

Petite résidence en plein centre de Bayonne, très agréable commerces à proximité et également un parking. La chambre n'est pas très grande mais très correcte avec une très belle salle de bain et un petit coin cuisine avec placard à l'entrée. Dommage pour l'emplacement tv il faudrais un meuble un peu plus grand et surtout plus haut.

ATTENTION TO WHOEVER WANTS TO CHECK IN AFTER 18. Unfortunately I have to put one star to review, if I could I would take starts away instead. We asked if we could check-in late before making the reservation, they said was not a problem as they had a procedure for it. We called them again on the day of the check-in. All fine. They were supposed to leave us the keys in a safe box. Apparently they had the brilliant idea to give the codes to several guests, one of which took our key as well. We arrived at 23.30, emergency numbers works only till 22.30, so if something happens to you at 22.31 is your problem. We tried to contact them for a while, no answer, at 2am we had to look for another accommodation. The next day nobody ever called us to apologise or to explain us what happened. How do we know? We had to call them. Several times. We even had to ask for the refund, like if it wasn't obvious. REMINDER FOR THE STAFF OF THE HOTEL: Problems do happen, you need to be good to come out of it somehow. You are NOT since you did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to at least apologise. RIDICULOUS.

A hotel that leaves you 2,5 hours standing outside without keys and no way of reaching the management is a place that doesn't deserve even a star. A hotel that doesn't call you after to apologize having ruined your day shouldn't be a hotel. I dont know how the hotel is inside, but from their customer service and the way they handled our problem it shouldn't deserve any guests. It was the most horrible experience with hotels we ever had.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
