Irun is one of the main transit points between France and Spain. The Bidasoa River that flows between the two countries gave its name, among other things, to the historical handball team. This river contains a curious feature that concerns both countries: Pheasant Island. This tiny territory in the middle of the river is the smallest condominium in the world and is governed by France for six months a year, and by Spain for the remaining six months.
