La Rhune is a mountain (905 m) at the western end of the Pyrenees. It is located on the border between France and Spain, where the traditional Basque provinces of Labourd and Navarra meet.
La Rhune holds an iconic place in Basque culture. It is covered in dolmens, stone circles and other neolithic monuments and was held to be a sacred place in Basque mythology.
The summit can be reached by the Petit train de la Rhune, which commences from the Col de Saint-Ignace.
