Located in a vast expanse of greenery, the village overlooks the fertile plain of the Garonne with its orchards and crops.

Founded in 1135, the central covered market is surrounded by arcades on two sides. Its outdoor leisure centre has a 400 ha stretch of water for sporting, educational and tourist activities and a land area of 25 ha, including a bird sanctuary with a wide diversity of species.
