Béost (alt. 520 m) 197 inhabitants

Following the built heritage of the Ossau valley …

An interpretation tour of the heritage has been created in the village to highlight the quality and huge diversity of the inscriptions and architectural ornements so typical of the Ossau valley:  floral, religious, political or professional patterns decorate the stones, lintels and cartouches of the façades …

Some façades adorned with a scallop shell are a reminder that Béost is a stage on the route to Santiago de Compostela as the castle (12th c.) and the church (guided tours) also bear witness.  Beautiful walks towards the hamlet of Bagès which used to be, in the 19th century, the home of a shepherd who became a famous botanist (Pierrine Gaston Sacaze).
