When you enter the department by the D 656, you only see it! A large and high bastide perched on a pech. You climb up to it by a small road which, below the ramparts, winds up the hillside. You pass through the gate and discover the orderly streets, the Place des Cornières, the belfry dating from 1637 and its moon clock made in 1843, then the stairs that leave the town, the water tower, etc... From the foot of this stronghold, you will reach the picturesque village of Bourlens, former residence of the bishops of Agen, through woods, vineyards and orchards, via the pech de Padès. After a long descent along shady paths lined with vineyards, you will reach the Dor valley. You will then walk due south, to go up gradually on the hillside of Castang. At a bend in the path, the northern ramparts of the bastide appear.
