Shopping and heritage sites
Do you fancy a shopping spree while exploring our remarkable buildings?
the town centre of Tarbes is the perfect place!
You’re in for a treat because all our shops are concentrated in the town centre:
come to the flowery, pedestrian streets, Foch and Brauhauban.
Shopping on Rue Foch
The Rue Maréchal Foch is 1 km long!
Between two shops, make sure you take a look at the remarkable buildings all around you.
You’ll find the Town Hall halfway down the street, at Place Jean-Jaurès.
When shopping meets literature
Rue Brauhauban is a pedestrian street and so is perfect for shopping. At n° 23 of this pedestrian stree, the famous writer Théophile Gautier, author of Captain Fracasse, was born.
As you wander around the town centre, you’ll find some souvenir gift ideas to take a piece of our region back home with you.
From Marcadieu market and the church of Sainte Thérèse to the Galeries Lafayette department store and the church of Saint Jean, stop off to admire these two churches.
One can be recognised by its spire, the other by its modern altarpiece.
