Fronton de Biscarrosse-Plage

111 Avenue de Lattre de Tassigny Biscarrosse-Plage, Biscarrosse plage See the map
Built in Biscarrosse Plage in 2001, the fronton is a wall against which one plays Basque pelota. It is an architectural element present in the quasi-totality of the cities and villages of the French Basque Country and, to a lesser extent, in the bordering regions.

The wall is erected at the end of an open square that serves as a playing field for the following specialties: bare hand, rebot, joko-garbi, grand chistera, grosse pala, paleta leather and paleta solid rubber.

In Basque, this place is called plaza.

The plaza is a generally uncovered area consisting of one wall, or two (one at each end). There are pediments of all sizes (10 to 16 meters wide and about 6 to 10 meters high), some are even covered.
