This town in the Gers, founded in the 13C, has developed an international reputation for its jazz festival, which draws top musicians and considerable crowds. The charming bastide town also boasts an appealing colourful food market, set up on the large and lively square in front of the town hall. The town is also home to the highest steeple in the Gers and a few narrow little medieval streets with ochre tones. It is a pleasant place to stay, particularly given the water park and hiking trails that complete the picture.
