Place Nationale

Reviewed By Bardangas - Athens

Arcaded enclosure functioning in toto as an organic provider, a gathering place, a l'ocus commercials'. It combines service provisions- shops and cafes with theatrical use labelling of the arcades and decoreated galleries. The heart of the bastide, one of the finest squares in France, a majestic functional open space. Sharing with maternal Toulouse the pink building material which constitutes an earthy unsurpassable building material. It is not the original bastide centre having being actually rebuilt after an 'incendie'. It iss beautiful core of the original bastide functioning as an inverted church space, open uncovered, intimate and a shopping centre.

Musee Ingres

Reviewed By kathleen s - Fort Lauderdale, Florida

I wasn't familiar with Ingres' art before going to this museum. There are several of his works but a lot of the collection is what he collected over the course of his lifetime.
It's probably worth going to see if you are in Montaubon but I wouldn't stop just for this.

Port Canal - Capitainerie

Reviewed By rdavisn - Chico, California, USA

When we arrived in port in Moissac, Captain Jim was on the dock waiting for us. I think that he got information on our arrival from the lock person in Castelsarrasin. He help us dock and gave us good information about Moissac. On our return trip from Valence d'Agen, Captain Jim was once again waiting for us and helped us tie up.
The facilities at the port are good -- electricity and water. The port captain -- Jim was most helpful.
The port is only a 10 minute walk to several good restaurants and the Abbey.

Great swimming complex with both indoor and outdoor pools plus additional facilities (e.g. Slides, jacuzzi, flume...). Well worth a visit if you fancy a swim and in the area. Gents: be warned, they don't permit swimming shorts unless they are the tight fitting kind! They...MoreHello, for reasons of hygiene, we do not accept bath shorts because these can also be used outdoors. In order to limit the pollution, we allow the boxers of baths.

Reviewed By Stueeee - Newport, United Kingdom

Arrived by train and there was no town map or any directions at station. (Something this office should rectify)
Finally found this place and all was then fine and helpful. They asked my nationality for their records and were quite surprised we'd arrived by train. This town is deservingly off the tourist trail having little to see or admire.

L'oliveraie

Reviewed By Caren M - Guernsey, United Kingdom

We visited here with our friends looking for some treats to take home to England.
We selected dried mushroom pasta "Pates Aux Cepes Et Bolets", dried mushrooms "Cepes" and lemon cookies "Croustillants Citron".
The man in the shop was so helpful and friendly. He joined in with our chatting, offering advice and letting me taste violet sugar crystals for the first time although they were not to my liking.
He provided us with some bubble wrap for packing safely our goodies into our case and also a book written in English and French on Montauban; it has beautiful photos inside so is extra special.
Possibly the best shopping experience in one shop I have ever had.

Le Musee d'Histoire Naturelle Victor Brun

Reviewed By Jane G - Reigate, United Kingdom

do go they have an amazing range of stuffed animals in a very small space - and yes it sounds strange but it is very interesting and you can view creatures you rarely even see in a zoo up close.
Some of the exhibits I found sad - like the vixen and her little cubs playing around her but overall a worthwhile trip to the second floor of this rather plain building.
Hint though - if you need a loo you have to ask the curator for the key and it is not the loo on the 1st floor (we tried that) it is down on the ground floor!

Montauban Cathedral

Reviewed By cgny1fwd - Houston, Texas

It seems like everything is red brick in Montauban (including the Place Nationale). But this Cathedral is white stone. Very nice baroque style. Definitely you should visit if you are in Montanan.

Eglise Saint-Jacques de Montauban

Reviewed By Pomerols - Weston, Florida

The church is a few yards away from the Place Nationale. It is pretty from the outside and is worth a walk through. I spent 10 or 15 minutes walking around and thought it was plenty. On the other side of the church down toward the river is the Musée Ingres (closed right now for renovation until 2019). So the church is also a good way to orient yourself in town.
