An architectural curiosity


We take you to Barbaste . A fortified mill is already unusual. But this one forms a particularly impressive whole. Beyond its architectural interest , it is a part of the history of our famous Henri IV which is revealed to you. At the time when he was still only the young Henri de Navarre and when he signed “ Henri, meunier de Barbaste ”… For more practical information, here is the sheet of the Moulin des Tours and its Romanesque bridge .

A very "select" entry into the equestrian world


To make your entry into the equestrian world a success, we suggest you go and bet a few cents on your favorite, during a race at the Sangruères racecourse . And to see on the other side of the barrier, a visit to the Villeneuve-sur-Lot stud farm is a must. You will know everything about horses, horse trades and animal traction.

A ride in Gabarre


It's hard to discover Lot-et-Garonne without taking a little trip on the water. For a change, we embark on a barge, a traditional boat in Nérac , with the Prince Henry Cruises for a guided excursion or a meal on the water . To find out more, read our report . Or in Fumel , the Gabarres fuméloises take you quietly on the Lot.

Storming the Bastides


There are many bastides to visit in the region. But what were they used for? What was everyday life in a bastide town in the Middle Ages ? ...

Meet the industrial age


For this last step, we show you an extraordinary machine. Watt's machine is a strange machine… A huge wind tunnel invented by James Watt, a Scottish engineer. The Fumel plant is fortunate to have one of the two machines still in working order. Currently, the town hall can no longer show it, but do not hesitate to consult the reference page on the town hall website to find out more .

We hope to have given you lots of ideas for surveying this department and to have brought you another look at this beautiful country territory .

Do you want to know more: its geography, its history…? Become an expert on the Lot et Garonne!
