Marmande - one of the largest of the bastides

Marmande, a market town that lies in the south-west of France in the north-west corner of Lot-et-Garonne, is one of the largest of the distinctively designed bastide towns that proliferate in this region. Said to have been founded by Richard the Lionheart on the site of an ancient settlement, Marmande is best known today for its superb variety of tomatoes, in which there is an important trade. The town is built on the usual grid pattern around a central arcaded square, where you will find markets and some attractive shops and cafés.

Marmande's beautiful cathedral

Marmande is not only famous for its tomatoes, however, as the town possesses a very beautiful cathedral which is worth visiting the town to see. The cathedral, with its interesting Gothic architectural features, also has some delightfully pretty gardens, perfect for a stroll in the sunshine after the shaded coolness of the interior. Meanwhile the town has a couple of cinemas and a museum as well, so there is plenty to do even if the sun doesn't shine for once.

Traditional markets galore

Marmande is renowned for its excellent markets, of which there are a few each week. The best is reputed to be the Saturday morning market. The town also hosts antiques markets, so if this is your bag it is definitely the right place for you. There are lots of Broccante shops near the town too, so Lovejoy eat your heart out!

And all mod cons
