OLD STONES AND SOFT PEPPER

Biarrotte (300 inhabitants) is the smallest municipality in the Seignanx district. Its name come from the Latin “ via rotarum” referring to the wide road which used to go through it, the current RD817 from Bayonne to Peyrehorade. On one side, the school, the town-hall and the shops surround the plublic square. On the other side is the fortified Roman church that is the starting point of a path (5km) which winds between hills and groves offering beautiful view points over Bédorède and the Pyrénees. We can see some palombieres (cabins perched in the trees used by woodpigeon hunters) >when the forest is thicknest and the mansion (Mayou) on the way back.

Although like in most municipalities in the Landes, pine trees and corn are grown, in Biarrotte there is also an original product, well known by gourmets : the mild pepper of the Basque Country and Seignanx. It is used to make omelettes and without which piperade would not exist (mixture made from tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic and olive oil).
