George’s Postcard Note: The ‘Moulin des Tours de Barbaste” built in the late the 13th century on a tributary of the Baise River. Its architecture evolved from its need to be fortified – its towers giving early warning and a sturdy defense against threats. We took a good walk here from our canal boat on the Baise.
