This village is an interesting curiosity because it was built in 1314 by the king of Navarre, Louis le Hutin, a Gascogne, in the Basque speaking country, partly to counter an English bastide, Hastingues, built not so far away.

Today it is a largely unspoilt village, with its arcaded houses, that is trying to make a name for itself with high quality artisanal goods.
