Montaut-les-Créneaux is a typically Gascon castelnau on the outskirts of Auch.
This small fortified medieval village has retained a number of traces of its history: the tower gate, castle, church, ramparts and more. The town is arranged around a central street that was once protected at either end by a gate. The street passes through the middle of a market hall.
The private 12th-century castle is surrounded by landscaped grounds. It is made up of two wings off a central dungeon. The upper part is crenelated, which explains the origin of the name "Montaut-les-Créneaux".
Nearby is the hamlet of Malartic with its private castle and farm.
A tourist information centre is open in July and August. The rest of the year, feel free to request information at the Auch tourist board.
