Anoye is part of the urban area of Pau.
Culture and Heritage
There are also the ruins of a hospital of the Hospitallers of Saint John of Jerusalem and the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem of Sendets, founded in 1315. They contained two boundary markers, called maltaises, from the 18th century: one being now at the Museum of Morlaàs, the second has disappeared.
The House called the Castle of Salettes was also built in the 17th century and rebuilt in the following centuries. The presbytery, however, dates from the beginning of the 18th century (1701) and was repaired in the 19th century.
Opposite the church, was the commune house dating from 1771.
The Bridge over the Léez dates to 1784 and 1790. It is registered in the General Inventory of Cultural Heritage.
The Church of Notre Dame, a former chapel from the 12th, 13th, and 14th centuries, was built and rebuilt in 1757, 1764, and 1878.
It contains furniture, seven windows, paintings, statues, and objects enrolled in the general inventory of cultural heritage, plus a cross, and a tombstone in the cemetery.
Anoye is a step on the via Tolosane (or Toulouse route), the Latin name of one of the four French paths France for the pilgrimage to Saint Jacques de Compostela.
Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
