  • Passing through this town strolled up and down from this monumental staircase Connie means the statue to d'Artagnan must see

  • Even more beautiful and majestic since it was renovated. Must-have. Views of the Gers and the lower town. A superb statue of d'Artagnan.

  • The term monumental is actually right. The renovation really gives character to this curiosity and made that highlight the Tower of armagnac, the Cathedral of the Holy Mary and our favorite musketeer who stands in mid course. Fabulous
