Bm330bis at Port de Clarabide

This bordercross is engraved in 2003. It was decided upon in a meeting of the Commision Mixte d'Arbornement (read the proceedings here) in 2002.
The delegation of Huesca stated that the exact location of the old cross was unknown.

But they didn't know that the original bm330 is located at the current Port d'Aygues Tortes, 3,5km to the west. That Port was named Port de Clarabide on older maps. In september 2012 Jean-Paul Laborie found the original bm330 there. See the curiosities-page

Henceforth, this bm has to be considered as bm330bis, as Jean-Paul himself proposes.
