Bourg-Madame is sometimes referred to as France's gateway to Spain and Andorra. The local inhabitants are called Guinguettois and Guinguettoises, as the town was once a simple village, called La Guingueta d'Ix.
Marie-Thérèse de France, aka "Madame Royale", inspired her husband, the Duc d'Angoulême, to name Bourg-Madame. The Duc had been exiled to Spain by Napoleon. He returned to France after Waterloo. It was on this occasion that he decided to elevate the first French village he passed through to the rank of town.
