Tour Auch, its surrounding villages and the Gers
The Grand Auch Coeur de Gascogne area offers a large choice of sites representing the heritage of the Gers. An interesting discovery for families, couples, friends or solo-travelers. Le Musée des Jacobins and its exceptional collection of pre-Columbian art (closed from april 2018 to april 2019), the Sainte-Marie cathedral listed by UNESCO, and the historic district of Auch, where the monumental staircase frames a statue of D'Artagnan, are not to be missed.
The surrounding villages are full of character, and many are listed for their beautiful flowerscapes, offering a variety of excursions in the heart of the Gers countryside.
The Newyork Times TRAVEL described Auch and its surrounding (The Gascony) as "... the Most Delicious Corner of France "
