    I had a bit of a wander after the museum visit and was intrigued by the sluice in the middle of the town that led to baths I believe.
    I was also impressed by the little flower boxes that were strategically placed around the streets and the intriguing brick work shown in the last picture with individual patterns on each brick.

    Water water everywhere, even in the middle of town Town square Beautiful flowers The bricks

    This is Arudy's great construction effort dated 1867, but, after some ups and downs, its construction was relaunched in June 1871 and ended in December 1873.
    This monumental building in the heart of the city, opposite the parish church, is constructed of local Arudy stone.
    I've left the rest as it appears on their website. If you can work it out please let me know!
    "Its imposing proportions alter in any way the first adjacent properties Lapointe, Combret Couarraze of Laa and leaving the municipality space for the culmination of the architectural project.
    Central staircase, doorframes and doors, windows, chimneys and tiles Halles be made in local gray marble, while the slate roof on chassis beech hedges harmonized with traditional houses ossaloises.
    The coat of arms Arudy, a plaster to the top of the chimney of the hall, the other in gray marble for the staircase will be designed and carved by Mr. Bouey, artisan palois"

    The church of the 15th and 16th century is dedicated to St Germain and reflects the transition from Roman to Gothic style: polygonal apse and flamboyant portal plus an altarpiece and paintings of the 17th, 18th century; wood, gilded wood statues, sculptures of St. Michael, St. Anastase St Lawrence,
    The chapel is dedicated to St Michel, with its murals depicting religious figures.

    L The spire is a standout Lovely pot plants outside the church The side portal created by the flying butress
