The old province of Gascony is now better known as the French Basque Country. It is primarily located in the Département of Pyrénées-Atlantiques in the extreme southwestern corner of the present day French region of Aquitaine. The Département of Pyrénées-Atlantiques was formerly called Basses-Pyrénées. It is bounded by the Départements of Landes and Gers on the north, Hautes-Pyrénées on the east, the Pyrénées Mountains and Spain on the south, and the Bay of Biscay to the west.
