And these are two borderstones of unknown origin between bm056 and bm057. Each one has a S on one side and a B on the other. According to Jacques the S links to Sare, the main village to the N in France, the other to Baztan, the Spanish municipality on the other side of the border.
According to Jacques Koleck there are 5 of them. But Robert Darrieumerlou is sure that there are only 4 submarkers. So: I have to return.

Jacques Koleck took pictures of all five of them.

This is the first, ± 220m from bm056
This is nr 2, ± 270m from bm056
This is nr 3, according to Jacques.

But Robert says it's nr 2
This is nr 4, according to Jacques but nr. 3 according to Robert.
This is nr 5, close to bm057, according to Jacques.

But Robert thinks this is nr 4, close to bm057

On top of the rocky hill of Atxuria, I couldn't find the unnumbered cross, mentioned in the Treaty.

Still, there are several crosses out there: I have received pictures of Jacques Koleck, Serge Poncet and Robert Darrieumerlou.

This is the geodetic marker on the hilltop

A few meters of this geodetic markers, there is this cross.

Robert Darrieumerlou shows the same cross on this page and two other crosses on the next pages.


And Jacques Koleck kindly sent this picture. He wrote: this cross is difficult to see, it's west of the geodetic marker and there are traces of yellow paint.

By the way: we are looking in the direction of bm057 and 056.
