  • To discover this bastide of the 13th century, a circuit is proposed to you from the market place and takes you to Rue de l’Escaraillette (typical street of the Middle Ages), then place Francois Dupaya with its belvedere and The garden of Payot (a breathtaking view of the Chalosse – a picnic area is available) and finally at the fountain of the hundred steps (150 steps to go down and up with a smile – bambouseraie – restored laundry – picnic area). In the direction of the laundry, get in the woods to reach the church of Saint-Pierre (12th century, Historical Monuments). During the visit, you will understand the Architectural elements of a bastide: very regular plan, streets that intersect at right angles, mirand…. Ask for the route at the Tourisme information office or the town hall. Do not forget to go to the Museum of Chalosse, a truly testimony of the sharecropping in Chalosse.
