Situated in the centre of the Ténarèze, a region with its valleys and hills, also known as the Tuscany of France, the city of Condom, once the capital of the Armagnac, has never lost its nice historic buildings, the proof of its extremely wealth. The cathedral from the XIVth century, the cloister and many gentlemans houses are still a proof of the wealth, brought by “the elixir of a long life” and still are the jewels in this former bishopric, situated on the river Baïse.
