Along the Bidouze river lies the 13th century castle of Bidache. It was built by the lords of Gramont and is even owned by the Gramont family to this very day. The castle has been added to through out the ages and was even burned by fire but rebuilt in 1523. The lords of Gramont became a huge part of the Bidache and France and made the castle far more luxurious over the years and into the 18th century.

Since the early 2000’s the castle was closed for restorative works. It was re opened to the public in 2012 and is now able to be visited by the public.
