Bayonne’s long association with chocolate stems from the Spanish Inquisition, when Jews who fled Spain set up their trade in the St-Esprit neighbourhood. By 1870 Bayonne boasted 130 chocolatiers (specialist makers of chocolate), more than in all of Switzerland. The 19th-century Cazenave , which is still in business, does a sublime chocolat mousseaux (rich hot chocolate; €5.90).
