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.
