The city is located in the heart of the former sovereign Principality of Béarn , of which it was the capital from 1464. Bordered by the Gave de Pau , the city is located 100 kilometres (62 mi) from the Atlantic Ocean and 50 kilometres (31 mi) from Spain . This position gives it an exceptional panorama across the mountain range of the Pyrenees as well as on the hillsides of Jurançon . The name of Horizons Palois aims to protect this vision, in particular with the famous Boulevard des Pyrénées which extends for kilometres ( miles) from the Château de Pau to the Parc Beaumont. Alphonse de Lamartine said: "Pau has the world's most beautiful view of the earth just as Naples has the most beautiful view of the sea."
