Between bm061 and bm062 - in front of a restaurant - there's another type of bordermarker.

Possibly a communal bordermarker between the village of Sare (S at the other side of the bm) and Baztan, the Spanish municipality.

This marker had once a peculiar position: on top of a small mound.

This picture comes from the documentary "L'homme de la frontičre" de Luc Bazin (see the literature-page)

But we had no idea where this was until Robert Darrieumerlou resolved the mystery:

And if we compare the building more closely, you can see that they must be the same.

Approximately 100m W of bm063, there's another S/B-marker.

Information of Jacques Koleck: at 80 m of bm065 in the direction of bm066, there's an unnumbered intermediate bordermarker. It's 50 cm high and carries the inscriptions S and B.
So that's identical to the ones between bm056 and bm057, bm061 and bm062 and between bm062-063
I guess that the S stands for Sare, the village to the north.

And this is another unnumbered S/B-bordermarker, about 80 meters from bm065.
It's ± 50 cm high.

In 2013 Jacques Koleck found the old bm66 half buried, against the little construction.

It was too heavy to turn around for a final check of the number. Sizes: 32x46x82cm + a base of 10cm.

It tells that the marker near the destroyed bm067 is a municipal marker.


In march 2014 I have been informed by Robert Darrieumerlou that this picture originates from his website (this page). The photographer was one "Xan".

According to Charles Darrieu it has been replaced a bit higher then previous.

Picture of bm072 on its previous location. Because of the construction of a road in front of the venta, the bm was replaced a bit backwards.

In the middle of Dantxarinea - on the old bridge over the 'border-river' - there are bordermarkers like this one on either side of the bridge.
