Tillac

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Gers

Village of Languedoc-Roussillon, Midi-Pyrénées, Tillac Niche its many charms in the department of Gers. Formerly fortified, it takes up to forty kilometers of Auch, near Marciac, a town known for its jazz festival.

Things to see and do

Fortified village, Tillac was built around a castle of which remains today a few remains. The site reveals a typical architecture of the region, and a large number of exceptional monuments.

Built in the fifteenth century, the Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur church reveals a beautiful Gothic. Inside, we find a nave rebuilt in the course of the nineteenth century, and an eighteenth-century altarpiece classified as an historic monument. Some liturgical treasures are also present in the building, like formal wear or processional banners. The religious art lovers can enjoy a pilgrim Virgin, a beautiful carved Jacques saint. The latter is inspired by a statue located on the main portal of the cathedral of Saint-Jacques de Compostela.

Beautiful castle of the eighteenth century, perhaps one of the finest in the region, Castle Pallanne is at the entrance of Tillac.

Walking through the old streets of the town, visitors discover some remains of ancient walls and towers, that of Mirande and that of Rabastens. They are sure to conquer the medieval village street with half-timbered houses of the fifteenth century wash house and its beautiful arcades.
