12 euros up to 50 euros to try out. The local wines are excellent
and give good value for money, and it is essential to try the
Armagnac and the aperitif "Floc de Gascogne". There are tours around
some of the vineyards at no charge (Monluc, Cassaigne, for example).

The town of Condom is easily and quickly accessible, and you can
have boat rides along the river Baïse, visit the Armagnac museum,
and the museum of "préservatifs"!

The smallest walled town in France is a fascinating part of a short
tour of the Gers which could also include the remains of the Roman
villa at Séviac. And don't forget the garlic festivals in Beaumont
and Saint-Clar!

Agen, Montauban (Ingres Museum), Albi (Toulouse Lautrec Museum),
Toulouse (France's 4th largest town) are all within easy travelling
distance, along with the Pyrenees, Cahors, Auch, Tarbes, Pau and
Lourdes. Carcassonne is about 11/2 hours' drive. The sea is about

Toulouse

Toulouse is the centre of France's high tech industry and in
particular the aerospace industry (Concorde and Airbus invented
here). This has led to the growth of a cosmopolitan, vibrant
conurbation with the second largest student population outside
Paris. Toulouse is known as 'La Ville Rose' due to the warm, pink
brick used in many of the buildings in the centre of the city. The
Vieux Quartier is particularly charming with its narrow alleyways,
cafes, oyster bars and squares such as Place Capitole. Here you'll
find some grand Renaissance palaces built by merchants who became
rich from the woad (blue dye) trade. The fleamarket is also worth
investigating and usually takes place on Sundays in Place St-Sernin.


Cite de l'Espace interactive, hands-on exhibition into space
exploration. Learn how to launch a rocket!

Basilique de St-Sernin visit the largest Romanesque basilica in
Europe

Eglise des Jacobins a Dominican convent with awesome palm-shaped
vault

Galerie Municipale de Château d'Eau a 19th century water tower and
is home to photographic exhibitions

Cathedrale St-Etienne northern French Gothic style cathedral

Montauban

Montauban is a delightful example of a bastide town set out in a
geometric pattern. It is built entirely of the same pink brick used
in Toulouse and boasts a charming 17th-18th-century main square
(Place Nationale) surrounded by some great shopping. Of noteworthy
praise is the Musee Ingres which has a great collection of the
artist's work (born in Montauban in 1780).

In 1570 Montauban was known as a Protestant stronghold with Henri de
Navarre reinforcing its fortifications. However, in 1628 King Louis
XIII ordered his men to besiege the town which ended Montauban's
fate as the last bastion of Protestantism

Moissac

Those who love Romanesque art are in for a real treat in Moissac for
it is home to Abbaye St-Pierre which served as a model for other
religious buildings in the south of France. The south portal is
particularly stunning and depicts St John's vision of the
Apocalypse. Moissac sits on the north bank of the Tarn which
provides the perfect setting for the much venerated jazz festival in
July and classical concerts in July and August. To add to the
attractiveness of this town are the orchards and vineyards of sweet
Chasselas grapes which surround it. Moissac also has its own marina
built in 1991 which adds a certain sense of chic to the place.

Auch

Auch is known for its Armagnac production and the finest foie-gras
de canard that France has to offer! The bustling Saturday markets
are a great place to sample some of this local fare.
If you can tear yourself away from the market, take a stroll to the
town's Cathedrale St-Pierre with its remarkable furnishings and 15th-
century stained-glass. Linking the cathedral square to the quays
below is the escalier monumental (232 steps in total) where you'll
find the Statue of d'Artagnan, whose real-life character (Charles de
Batz) was immortalised by the novelist Alexandre Dumas.
Historically an important trading post linking Toulouse with the
Atlantic coast, Auch is a convenient spot for exploring the Gers
countryside with its picturesque villages such as Lavardens and
Boulaur.
