A town steeped in history and tradition, Agen invites you to come and discover its heritage.
The town of Agen is an archetypal riverside city, and has always had a special relationship with waterways. Westwards, you'll see the Garonne, whilst further north is the canal. These navigable waterways have had a profound effect on the appearance of the town of Agen, as well as a significant influence on its history and culture.
During your visit to Agen, you should take some time to lose yourself in the town's centre, where you'll find the pretty Place des Laitiers and its historic frontages with their own tales to tell.
People who enjoy countryside walks will love the ancient island of Le Gravier, which is protected from the river by a dyke, where you can stroll all the way along this wonderful location.
Take a trip back in time when you wander through the remains of medieval Agen. Here, the 14th century homes and the monuments from the 11th century will enable you to imagine life in bygone eras. And you can bring your historic walk to a close when you stop off at Agen's railway station, which was built by Gustave Eiffel.
