Guiche (Occitan: Guishe; Basque Gixune) is a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in south-western France.

Popular culture[edit]

The anime/manga Rose of Versailles references Guiche as a dukedom when the "Duke de Guiche" (Duke of Guiche) plays a role in the story where the Duchess of Polignac engages both of her daughters to be married to him against their will (one of which, Rosalie Lamorlière, plays a central role in the story).
