Jacobins Museum

Interesting
Housed in the former Jacobin convent, this museum boasts one of France's largest collections of pre-Columbian and Latin American sacred art, including the famous featherwork The Mass of St Gregory (1539). Also worthy of mention are the Egyptian, Gallo-Roman and medieval collections, the section on local traditions and folklore in Gascony, along with the Fine Art room that focuses on two local artists: J­-L Rouméguières and Antonin Carlès.
