DISCOVERY VISIT OF THE VILLAGE OF CASTELNAU-BARBARENS

The guides-lecturers of the Country of Art and History invite you to walk around Grand Auch to discover its history and its heritage.

Program

In the XNUMXth century, Bernard I, Count of Astarac, and Guillaume Arnaud Desbarrats, co-signers of the place, chose the strategic site of Barbarens on the side of a rocky outcrop to build a new castle (castet nau). The town gradually developed around the seigneurial castle, itself enclosed in a fortified enclosure, pierced by three gates. Along the streets, discover the vestiges of the medieval era with its pousterles, its embans, its many half-timbered houses ... Let yourself be told the story of the Notre-Dame-de-Pitié chapel as well than that of the Sainte-Quitterie church, built in the XNUMXth century on the site of the old castle.

Tickets to be collected during the opening hours of the tourist office or on site. Tour partially accessible to people with reduced mobility.

Limited number of places. Booking is recommended.


Tourists, day trippers or residents of the Gers region, take advantage of the Cultural Pass to discover or rediscover the Grand Auch.
