Pyrénées-Atlantiques (; Gascon: Pirenèus-Atlantics; or ) is a department in Aquitaine, southwest of France. It takes its name from the Pyrenees mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. It covers the French-administered part of the Basque Country as well as a small part of Gascony.

History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Basses-Pyrénées is one of the original 83 departments of France created during the French Revolution, on 4 March 1790. It was created from parts of the former provinces of Guyenne, Béarn, and Gascony and included the three traditional provinces of the Northern Basque CountryLabourd, Soule, and Basse-Navarre. The previous history of the region, under the Ancien Régime, can be found at those individual regions.

The decision meant on the ground the fusion in one administration unit of the Bearnese and the Basques, who held different traditions and mutually hostile attitudes, and the automatic suppression of the secular region specific laws.

On 10 October 1969, Basses-Pyrénées was renamed Pyrénées-Atlantiques.
