The "rock of the Virgin" is a natural curiosity with the shape of the hull of a ship, dominated by a statue of the Virgin Mary. Accessible by a footbridge, you can admire the entire bay of Biarritz from the top of this rock, its Grande Plage on one side and the Basque coast all the way to Spain and the Pyrenees on the other.
The rock is located between the Port-Vieux and the Port des Pêche. The two ports are separated by the Atalaye rock, the top of the promontory overlooking the sea, which served as a place for whale watching.
The ashes of actress Maria Schneider (The last tango in Paris) who died on February 3, 2011, at the age of 58, are dispersed in front of the rock of the Virgin in Biarritz.
