Its nickname, due to its location on a rounded-shaped hill, is lou Carcolh (the snail).

Geography

The town lies on a hill looking over the valley of the Gaves réunis, in the Gascon region and bordering on the Basque Country.

History

The bastide was founded in 1289 by John Hastings, seneschal of Gascony, who signed a treaty of coregency in the name of Edward I of England between the king, Duke of Aquitaine and the monks of Arthous abbey.

The work on the doorway was started in 1289 but the town wall still was in work in the 15th century.

The houses Jurats and Sénéchal were built in the same century.
