It was built in the 13th century together with the fortified mill adjacent. When you visit you will be immersed in medieval times.
The Pont Roman de Barbaste has been fully equipped for defence and some remnants of its artillery are still present to date.
It was initially owned by the family of Albret, the young Henry Navarre and would-be Henry IV.
The structure was ravished by a great fire in 1937, though, and was completely rebuilt after.
