Lonely Planet review
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. You can see chocolate being made at L’Atelier du Chocolat , including a historical overview of chocolate in Bayonne and, of course, tastings.
