The capital of Armagnac, a former episcopal town and sub-prefecture, is the welcoming small town of Condom. Located at the heart of Gascony on the banks of the River Baïse, it offers visitors a rich built heritage. This includes elegant 18th century private mansions such as those of Polignac and Cugnac, the old Cathedral of St. Peter from the 16th century, and a superb cloister in the flamboyant gothic style.

Lovers of the famous wine brandy should make sure they pay a visit fo the Armagnac Museum. Based in the outbuildings of the former episcopal palace, it tells the story of the various stages of the Armagnac production cycle through its collection of wine-producing utensils. In a similar vein, the House of Ryst-Dupeyron, located in the Hotel de Cugnac, offers a slideshow about Armagnac and a tour of its hundred-year-old cellars.

Additional information
Condom

The human settlement in the region seems to begin Condomoise at the end of prehistory. She gives birth to a native habitat replaced by the 1st century Gallo-Roman cities and Villae.

The medieval period has left many Romanesque and Gothic (castles and churches) revealing multiple religious and secular lordships that in the duchy of Gascony shared the land. Condomois depended on the diocese of Agen in 1317 until the creation of the diocese of Condom.

This is especially the Anglo- French conflict that marks the area with the attachment of Condomois to the crown of England in 1152 at the marriage of Eleanor of Aquitaine to Henry Plantagenet King of England. After the Hundred Years War, the Condomois is returned to the French crown and at the division of administrative units in France, and placed in the general stewardship of Bordeaux.

In the 16th century, during the episode of religious wars strong Calvinist impregnation characterizes the country and leads to many conflicts against the Leaguers.

The prosperity of the region come from the development of vineyards early in the 17th century and the 18th century will be quite successful with the planting of many vines encouraged by the Edict of 1766 which authorizes clearing. The wine is of poor quality then transformed into brandy and shipped by land and waterway ( the Baise from Lavardac ) to Bayonne and Bordeaux to the Nordic countries or America.

During the revolutionary period, the Condomois is attached to the department of Gers.
