Agen started out as a port on the River Garonne; since the industrial revolution it has become a primarily agricultural town, producing plums and prunes. It is situated halfway between Toulouse and Bordeaux in the southwest of France. Although initially not an impressive town, Agen is home to some beautiful buildings such as the Cathédrale St-Caprais. Places of interest to visit are the Musée municipal des Beaux-Arts, and the Saturday morning market in the beautifully cultivated Le Gravier Public Gardens.
