    • Erected in the 13th century, the Romanesque bridge and the fortified mill immerse you in medieval times. This exceptional site reopens and welcomes you from May to September.

      On the banks of the Gélise, the site of the Moulin des Tours, classified as a historic monument in 1889, brings together a fortified mill from the end of the 13th century, located on the "Ténérèze" and a Romanesque bridge with ten arches (XIIth), which constituted an important defensive set. Property of the Albret family in the 14th century, the young Henri de Navarre, future Henri IV, liked to sign certain letters "Henri, meunier de Barbaste". A legend says that the four different size towers represent the four daughters of the miller. After a serious fire in 1937, the buildings are almost completely rehabilitated and open to visitors.

    A good short visit. It is small but if you have nothing to do, checking out this will be ok. Good area for taking photo not many people walking when we visit.

    Could be a very interesting place but in need of renovation.
