Leyre (river)

The Eyre is a coastal river that flows through the Moors of Gascony, in Aquitaine, Southwest France.

The river is generally presented as the confluence of:

  • the Grande Leyre (Large Leyre), its principal course, upstream from Moustey,
  • the Petite Leyre (Small Leyre), its main tributary.

''Note that Leyre is a variant of the name Eyre, affected by an agglutination of the Romance article''.
