What to visit in the department of Gers
It is in the heart of Gascony, in the department of Gers that you can follow in the footsteps of D'Artagnan the musketeer. A land of history, many museums are to be visited, as rich as they are varied, including the famous musketeer's museum, the Jazz museum and the Jacobins museum.
The cathedrals of the Gers, in particular the cathedral Sainte-Marie d'Auch whose construction lasted 2 centuries, or that of Saint-Luper or Saint-Alain tell the history of the department. The Gers is also full of beautiful villages, such as the village of Lavardens and its castle or the one of Fourcès, an unusual village built in a circular way! Other beautiful villages in France are also worth visiting, such as Sarrant or Larressingle and its ramparts.
The Gers is, apart from being a department filled with history, a green department where nature is preserved. There are many lakes and ponds, such as the Lizier or Saint Jean lakes, and are the meeting point for many migratory birds, including grey herons.
The woods and forests (such as the Larroucau forest or the Auch woods), the green countryside, rivers such as the Adour river offer all walkers beautiful walks. The flora is particularly rich in colour, because poppies, adonis and even orchids brighten up the landscapes of the Gers!
