The Church of Saint-Martin is the only medieval building in the city. Cumulating the Romanesque tradition of a popular Gascon choice, for the vast single nave, and the local reference of the builders, for the wide and uninterrupted spaces in the southern "architectural line" built Gothic of the 14th century reworked in the 19th, it conceals parts remarkable such as a 17th century organ, a gilded wood altarpiece from the 17th century, a sculpted pulpit, baptismal fonts of very beautiful marble, an ornate grille, a masterpiece of ironwork.
The Hall was built in 1862 by Jean-Jacques Latour, on the model of the Halles centrale de Paris by Victor Baltard. It is still used for the Saturday markets.
The Town Hall is an 18th and 19th century building, remodeled in the 20th century, which retains a series of 19th century works, notably by a local artist, Edmond Desca. This town hall was located on the cemetery of an old church destroyed in the 16th century. In the hall of the town hall, one can still see a limestone from the old municipal premises of the 17th century, bearing the only preserved coat of arms of the city.
