A world-renowned glass-making centre, Vianne is one of the few Bastides in France (and the only one in the Lot-et-Garonne) with all four of its original gates still intact. It is also the only bastide named after a woman.
During July and August, there is a Friday evening market with over 1,000 people dining in the streets. Not to be missed (especially if you like snails!)
