Bayonne is the leading port and pleasure-yacht basin of the Côte Basque. It has the longest tradition of bull-fighting in France, a major part of the five-day Fêtes de Bayonne which also feature parades, music, dance, fireworks, food and drink. There are also important festivals of Jazz (July), Bayonne ham (Holy Week), theatre and pelota (the Basque sport). Bayonne is known for its fine chocolates, produced in the town for 500 years, and also for Izarra, the liqueur made in bright colors.
