Lectoure
The Essential
Interesting
This former Gallo-Roman settlement, capital of the Counts of Armagnac and then Lomagne, overlooks the Gers valley and Lomagne hills (enjoy the superb views from the Bastion walk). This small town perched on a limestone promontory is full of fine stone houses, terraces, and gardens with fountains and palm trees along its narrow streets. Woad, the plant that created the blue dye that created great wealth in this "land of plenty" (or Pays de Cocagne as it was known), is once again being grown here. Don't miss the lapidary museum containing a unique collection of 20 taurobolic altars.
