Sames

(a few reviews from 1 attraction)
Sames is a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in south-western France.It is nowadays generally listed as one of the communes in the Basque Country province of Lower Navarre (in Basque, Nefarroa Beheroa).Geolocation and geographySames lies in the valley of the Adour river, the only significant river going to the Gulf of Gascony (otherwise known as Bay of Biscay, from the Basque province Biscaya) other than the Garonne river in the whole of France’s vast southern province called Aquitaine (Aquitania, the old Roman province, that later was called Novempopulania, spread all the way from the Garonne river to the Pyrenees and was populated by Basque-related people from time immemorial). While the Garonne river picks up the longest trail of its waters from middle-eastern Pyrenees till Toulouse, most of its waters actually come from its west bank and the old cambrian mountains of Massif Central, whereas the waters from all the central and western part of the Pyrenees flow down into the Adour (that kept a very ancient bask name, “Atur” or "Aturri"). Sames lies at the precise point where most of the waters converge at the very feet of the northernmost mountainous rises of the Pyrenees to build the powerful Adour, a river over 300m wide, 6 m deep, and swept by tides of 2m up to Sames (and a bit beyond) that from there strikes straight westward to the Atlantic Ocean:
