What's Mont-de-Marsan Like?
Interesting points located within the town itself include the 14th century Donjon Lacataye, the former keep of the town, where visitors can imagine the view of the landscape of those whose responsibility it was to keep watch over the town. The Despiau-Wlérick Museum, which is situated in the keep itself, houses around 700 works dedicated to contemporary figurative sculpture, with a special focus on works from the 1930s. The 19th-century Church of Saint Madeleine is the largest in the city, resembling something of a Greek temple with its neoclassical columns similar to its Parisian namesake. Take a peek inside and you'll be rewarded with some unexpected frescoes on marble. The town is located at the foot of the Regional Nature Park of the Landes de Gascogne, which covers some 780,000 acres. The park is situated on an important migratory path, making it the home for part of the year to some 300,000 migrant birds.
