One of the country's most noted landmarks, Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-la-Sède de Tarbes stands tall over the commune of Tarbes. A Roman Catholic Cathedral, this beautiful structure dates back to the 12th and 13th Century and is marked by its divine Gothic architecture. Step inside this expansive cathedral and be mesmerized by the exquisite art work and sculpture that it holds. The chapel of the Virgin Mary housed within it holds a beautiful gold altarpiece that attracts a number of artists to the cathedral. For its history, architecture and art, Tarbes Cathedral is definitely a must see while in the area.
Château de Montaner was constructed in the 14th Century and its construction was commissioned by Gaston Febus, a vivacious Bearn prince, to guard Bearn's frontiers with Armagnac and Bigorre and defend his state. A mighty fortress built with red stone, Château de Montaner is dominated by its imposing 40 meters (131 feet) tower and overlooks the mesmerizing countryside. Found on Bearn's borders, Château de Montaner is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular examples of 14th-century military architecture.
