The town of Marmande lies in a fertile market gardening region and is known as the "tomato capital". It offers visitors a range of interesting heritage, including a Gothic church with Renaissance cloister, half-timbered houses in the Labat district and Place Clemenceau, a square with a statue dedicated to the love apple.
The 13th- and 14th-century Gothic Notre-Dame church, whose facade features a beautiful rose window, contains an Entombment of Christ and a 17th-century gilded wood Baroque altarpiece. Adjoining the church is a Renaissance cloister dating from 1540 with a well-preserved gallery. It is flanked by a French-style formal garden with "Remarkable Garden" status that contains beautiful topiary art.
Fans of alternative music should not miss the famous Garorock festival held on the end of June/early July!
