At the gates of Gascony , the bastide of Sarrant has an originality: its snail shape . Its alleys are wrapped around its church. This village is a witness to the wars of religion : its church which was partially destroyed and rebuilt at that time, its half-timbered and mud houses , perfectly restored, its front door, pierced in a square tower , and its garden of medieval inspiration .
