Navarre, a Spanish province between Aragon, Old Castile, and Biscay, having France on the N., and containing 2,449 square miles. It lies below the west slopes of the Pyrenees, and many streams flow thence to join its rivers, the Ebro and Bidassoa. The climate is temperate and healthy. Timber is grown on the uplands, while the lowlands produce wheat, maize, wine, oil, flax, and hemp. Iron, copper, and lead are found. The Basque language prevails in the north. Half of Old Navarre came to France through Henri IV.
