A walk in Arcachon

A walk in the streets of Arcachon

The city of Arcachon was born in 1885 from an imperial decree of Napoleon III. The city developed rapidly during the Belle Epoque under the impulse of the Pereire brothers, who also financed Haussmann's works in Paris. All the good society went to Arcachon to enjoy the good air of the ocean. Today the city of Arcachon has become a very pleasant city where activities for tourists are numerous. The Dune du Pyla is located right next to Arcachon.
