Escalier Monumental, Auch

4.2
Climb the 370 steps of Escalier Monumental, and enjoy the surrounding gardens and terraces. The 35 m high (115 ft) staircase was built in 1863 with local limestone. In the center stands a statue of Charles de Batz, better known as the Comte d'Artagnan--captain of the King's Musketeers that Alexandre Dumas made famous in his tale, "The 3 Musketeers." As you climb, you can rest at the three main platforms along the way, and take pictures in the landscaped gardens.

    no name as the monumental. There is in the upper part a beautiful fountain and the statue of d'Artagnan. If there wasn't that this staircase to see, it would not merit moving auch

    Great food, very nice site and nice view of the lower town. Do not miss a visit and tour to do at the same time the Cathedral and its streets.
