  • English
    • Several events mark the history of Dax.
      First called Aqua Tarbellicae (the waters of Tarbelles) then Civitas Aquensium in the 5th century, and provostship of Ax in the 13th, the current city extends over a lakeside city. The alluvial deposits of the Adour gradually filled in the original lake and allowed the city to be built on solid ground after having first existed on stilts. The Romans made it famous (the Emperor Augustus' daughter was already treating her rheumatism there) and rich; Louis XIV also stopped in Dax on his way back from Saint Jean de Luz, a triumphal arch is also erected in his honor. But Dax has made its wealth from its water, rainwater which is enriched with mineral salts and heats up to 62° and water from the adour; Dax is today a place of Cure with a national reputation.
      Dax is however not only a city of cures, it is also a place where, as in all of the Landes, life is good, gastronomy, bullfighting shows, and the famous Dax festivals are worth a detour!
      During your visit to the city, don't miss the famous Hot Fountain whose waters gush out at 62°, the Borda statue and museum, an 18th century maritime engineer from Dacquois, the imposing Notre Dame cathedral, the banks of the Adour, parks and gardens...
