Discover Auch

Elegant and picturesque with its cathedral and Armagnac tower, Auch is a town full of charm. The capital of the Gascogne exudes the charm of easy living with a decidedly Southern flavour.

From narrow stepped medieval streets to the River Gers that separates the old and modern districts, the town has many surprises in store for visitors. A day won't be too much to enjoy the charms of this ancient Roman town. 


A stopover on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, Auch is as appealing for its elegant cathedral (a UNESCO World Heritage site) as it is for the extensive pre-Columbian collections of its museum... 

In Auch, you'll enjoy: 

  • Renting a bike and cycling along the towpath by the River Gers.
  • Filling up on tasty foods at the Saturday morning market, around the cathedral and the Herb Market.
  • Attending a circus performance during the Circa festival (in October)
  • A fun family discovery of Auch, walking in the footsteps of the King's musketeers.
