This peaceful market town has traditionally thrived on its agriculture, however as the capital of the Lot-et-Garonne region it has seen tourism increase in recent years. Hot summers and farmhouses rented out as holiday homes in the surrounding areas have encouraged visitors, and Agen itself is very pretty, with a 13th century cathedral and a fine art museum that contains work by Goya. A series of canals both man-made and natural make river cruising possible, a great way to visit nearby areas. In terms of food Agen is most famous for its prunes; ‘pruneaux d’Agens’ are typically preserved in cognac or stuffed with marzipan.
