Built around a castle which has today been replaced by a tree-shaded square, Fourcès is an original "bastide" with a circular ground plan whose houses form a dramatic setting of half-timbering and arcades. In addition to some must-taste gastronomic delights of this Gascon land, the village also attracts visitors with several key events such as its Flower Market in April or "Marciac in Fourcès" an extract from the now famous jazz festival.
