Agen and its history
From the Renaissance, Agen was a town full of architectural monuments, each as beautiful as the next.
Unfortunately, many of these historical monuments were demolished during the Revolution.
Nevertheless, there still remain lovely tourist sites worth visiting:
The Saint-Caprais d’Agen Cathedral, built in the 12th century, which is situated on the Camino de Santiago.
The Place du Docteur Esquirol, in the centre of Agen, where 3 buildings built in 3 different eras face each other (the theatre, the Museum of the Beaux-Arts and the old law courts).
The Agen Aqueduct is the second largest aqueduct in France.
Built in the middle of the 19th century, it extends over 550 metres and consists of 23 arches.
The houses on the Rue Beauville, the historical centre of Agen, a narrow street typical of the 15th century
