This dataset refers to samples collected from the Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary rocks that crop out in the Chaînons Béarnais and the northern part of the western Axial Zone, in the Northern Pyrenees. The dataset includes two different types of results: (1) paleomagnetic directional data (Table 1) and (2) peak temperatures obtained from the application of the Raman Spectroscopy on Carbonaceous Materials (RSCM) technique (Table 2). RSCM parameters are shown and used to calculate the mean peak temperatures attained by the sampled units. Stable paleomagnetic components were defined in 23 out of the 29 sampled sites. From the polarity and orientation of paleomagnetic components, a hypothesis on their age and the tectonic rotations occurred after their acquisition is established.
