A small Landes town in the Tursan, between Gers and Pyrénées-Atlantiques, Aire-sur-l'Adour has plenty of sights to see as you wander among its Historic Monuments and along the pleasant banks of the Adour.
Listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, as part of the Way of St James, the Church of St Quiteria, situated on the Mas hillside, is famous for its Gothic entrance and vast crypt. The latter is remarkable for holding the splendid, white marble sarcophagus of St Quiteria, dating from the 4th century!
Carry on exploring Aire-sur-l'Adour's heritage with a look at the octagonal, 19th-century corn exchange and the Cathedral of St John the Baptist, where there is wood panelling and an organ from the 18th century.
Then head for the banks of the Adour for a relaxing stroll or a picnic break by the waterside!
In the covered market on Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, there is a food market every Tuesday and Saturday morning.
