The Gers has a lot to offer historically. Here you can find traces of the Romans and of the Cathars. You can also walk in the footsteps of D’Artagnan, the best-known Gascon worldwide thanks to Alexandre Dumas, the musketeer of King Henry the Thirteenth!
Traces of the knights & the musketeers are to be found everywhere --- in Gascony there are more than 20 castles & forts worth seeing for every 10,000 inhabitants. To visit festivals, markets and museums is fun for not only fans of the Middle Ages!
Mauvezin: archeological museum
Seissan: “Market as in the Olden Days”
Termes d’Armagnac: medieval festival
Larresingle: very small medieval town
Séviac: Gallo-Romanic villa
Lupiac: where D’Artignan was born
Whatever you’re looking for in your holiday --- you’ll find it with us in the beautiful Department of Gers!
Markets, night-time markets, museums, churches and cathedrals have everything to offer to those interested in culture. Friends of astronomy, gastronomy, golf, spas and horse-riding will all have fun with us here.
