Saint Palais, once another capital of the Basse Navarre, is a strongly agricultural town which retains its importance in the area thanks to the local agricultural co-operative which groups together over half the farmers in the Basque area.

Thus it has a particularly strong Basque identity, evident every Friday morning when the farmers gather for the market and meet their friends to discuss the weather and everything else.

St Palais is also an important stop on the pilgrimage route to St Jacques de Compostelle.
