The Basque Country is a landscape on the Atlantic coast in the border region of the countries Spain and France. The Autonomous Region of the Basque Country in Spain is not identical with the Basque Country in the cultural sense, which also includes the French Basque Country and the region of Navarre (Basque Nafarroa), which is Basque mainly in its northwest.

Basque Country France

The French Basque Country (French: Pays Basque, Basque: Iparralde = northern Basque Country) forms the western part of the department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques in south-western France. It is divided into three areas marked in yellow on the map: Labourd (Basque Lapurdi), Lower Navarre (French Basse-Navarre, Basque Nafarroa Beherea) and Soule (French also Pays de Soule, Basque Zuberoa). The two AOC areas of Béarn and Irouléguy are located here.
