Esplanade des Quinconces

The esplanade is built on the site of Fort Tropeyte, built after the battle of Castillon in 1453, and replaced in the 17th century by the Château Trompette, demolished in 1816. On the square, stands the famous Monument to the Girondins. All year round, every day except Wednesday and Saturday, a walking tour including the Esplanade des Quinconces is proposed by the Tourist Office, at 10 am – additional visit from July 15 to August 15 at 3 pm.
