Agen and its canal-bridge

Agen is proudly celebrated in France as the country’s prune capital! The town straddles the Garonne.

Agen and its canal-bridgeExploring its winding medieval streets and elegant boulevards, unearth history going back 2,000 years, via St Caprais Cathedral, Rue des Cornières, the Musée des Beaux Arts (its art collections occupying four Renaissance houses) and Les Jacobins Church… not forgetting the splendid canal-bridge over the Garonne – with four locks and 23 stone arches, it’s the second-longest canal-bridge in France, after that over the Loire at Briare.
