The History of a palace:

1878 : Construction

The mayor of Pau, Henri Faisans, ordered a marvel of Belle Époque architecture, designed by Émile Bertrand, to be built in the Parc Beaumont, which had been acquired by the City of Pau.

1899 : Inauguration

The complex included a Palmarium (palm greenhouse) topped by an immense glass and metal dome, a covered walkway, four café-restaurant dining rooms, a theatre, various lounges and a casino.

1928 : Conversion into a city casino

In a rather deteriorated state, the Palais d’hiver (winter palace) was to be converted into a city casino according to plans by Georges Wybo, the architect responsible for the casinos in Deauville and Cannes: the Palmarium and its glass roof were thus demolished.

2000 : Renovation

At the instigation of André Labarrère, Mayor of Pau, the Palais was completely renovated by the City of Pau (architect: François Lombard). It retained its 1928 appearance but became a convention centre under the name Le Palais Beaumont. The casino was preserved in the eastern part of the complex, while areas planted with exotic trees are a reminder of the splendour of the Palmarium of 1900.
