The fortified village of Larressingle

Visit Larressingle, one of the most beautiful villages in France, and its mediaeval Gascon château

 

Immerse yourself in the history of Gascony, and discover one of the smallest and most beautiful fortified villages in France. Boundary walls, crenellated towers, a moat, a thirteenth century entrance door, a fortified church from the twelfth century and medieval terraced houses all welcome you to the village, just as if it was still the sixteenth century.

 

With unique medieval architecture, the village Larressingle, once owned by the abbey of Condom and which survived successive wars intact, is nestled in lush greenery in the heart of the Gers wine-growing countryside.
