Biarritz, a favorite holiday destination of the 19th century's European aristocracy, has been still leaving the tourists stunned with its splendor and luxury. During a sightseeing tour of this resort, the English-speaking guide will constantly stop at one or another building: after all, almost every attraction is associated with the names of celebrities – from Queen Victoria to Coco Chanel. The Church of the Intercession of the Virgin Mary became a peculiar monument to the Russian aristocrats who were resting here. In addition, the empress Evgenia’s villa, Angleterre and Plaza hotels, a lighthouse, a casino, and Miremon confectionery stand out among the other architectural pearls of the resort. You cannot wean yourself off visiting the Virgin's Rock, the symbol of Biarritz (Excurzilla advises you to do this early in the morning, when there are fewer people who want to get to the cape).
