Auch tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Auch is known for its Armagnac production and the finest foie-gras de canard that France has to offer!  The bustling Saturday markets are a great place to sample some of this local fare. 

If you can tear yourself away from the market, take a stroll to the town's Cathedrale St-Pierre with its remarkable furnishings and 15th-century stained-glass.  Linking the cathedral square to the quays below is the escalier monumental (232 steps in total) where you'll find the Statue of d'Artagnan, whose real-life character (Charles de Batz) was immortalised by the novelist Alexandre Dumas.   

Historically an important trading post linking Toulouse with the Atlantic coast, Auch is a convenient spot for exploring the Gers countryside with its picturesque villages such as Lavardens and Boulaur perched high above the Gimone Valley.
