At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The symbol of Biarritz!

The Villa Eugénie, the great waves rolling in from the Atlantic ocean and the Rocher de la Vierge all instantly spring to mind when one thinks of Biarritz. This statue of the Virgin Mary commemorated the miraculous return of whalers after a terrible storm.

But it was really only in 1887 that the rock was rendered accessible to strollers, with the construction of a bridge on the orders of Napoleon III. Today, this metal bridge, designed by the engineer, Gustave Eiffel,still stands and leads up to rock. More than just a place to walk, the Rocher de la Vierge has become the symbol of Biarritz!
