Overlooking the Garonne Valley from the top of its hill, the village of Auvillar, a stop along the Way of St. James, has the distinction of being listed among the most beautiful villages of France.
Once you cross the door of the imposing 17th-century clock tower, you will be delighted to discover Auvillar's main square, which is superb with its unusual circular corn exchange, standing on Tuscan columns, and its ancient timber-framed arcade houses. Not far away is a panoramic viewpoint complete with a viewpoint indicator located on the site of the old castle, offering a beautiful view of the Garonne and its valley.
A place to visit is the Museum of Old Auvillar, which is dedicated to art and popular traditions, and contains a remarkable collection of local ceramics made in the 18th and 19th centuries.
For lovers of local produce, a farmer's market takes place every Sunday morning in the market hall!
