Barbaste lies on the River Gelise, where it joins 'the Baise', several miles south of Nerac.
It is spanned by an impressive medieval bridge which is guarded on its right bank by a powerful fortress which also functioned as a mill.
As with the bridge at Nerac, Sir William ignored the more picturesque aspects of this view,
and chose to paint what is in reality a somewhat uninteresting and drab accretion to the main building.
The castle was one of the fortified homes of King Henry IV of France.
