What island changes hands between France and Spain every six months?
Pheasant Island island lies in the Bidasoa River between France and Spain, and it has maintained an unusual status since the 17th century. When France and Spain needed a neutral site to sign their Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659, they chose Pheasant Island, and amended the treaty so that the island changes hands every six months — remaining a site of common ground and symbolizing peace and equality.
