THE VIRGIN'S ROCK
THE VIRGIN'S ROCK, A REAL EMBLEM OF BIARRITZ!
The legend tells that whalers returning to the port were taken in a storm of such an intensity as they believed their last hour had come, when a light so saving as radiant returned them to the port…The survivors set up then some crosses and a statue of the Virgin on this rocky and inhospitable island seeming to challenge the ocean at the end of the beach of Biarritz.
Napoleon III, who had discovered Biarritz thanks to Empress Eugenie, had the great idea to make connect the rock with the coast by a metallic footbridge. This bridge has been built by Gustave Eiffel.
This place is approachable only in clear weather. When the weather is clear and when the sun is brilliant, it is the small walk which remains a delight: the beach confides in front of you, marrying the bay making since the port up to the lighthouse of Biarritz, whereas a light breeze will wrap you with its steams marine.
So I recommend you strongly to go there if you have a walk around.
Thus do not wait any more to discover this place.
