Valence - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Tarn-et-Garonne

Valence was created in 1283 by Edward 1st of England. Old English country house, she keeps this time its main square, but the characteristic of this village of 5,000 inhabitants is the multiplication of its seats over the centuries. Crossing the Canal des Deux Mers and greenway ideal for walkers and bike riders, Valence is a commercial city attractive. Its weekly market on Tuesday morning allows the visitor to discover a colorful world where regional produce (fruits and vegetables from the valley of the Garonne, confit and foie gras, not forgetting the famous Agen prunes) are all without chips to taste moderation.
