Arènes de Condrette

On the outskirts of the village of Mugron in Chalosse, discover this beautiful 2,500 seat Lande arena bedecked with flowers, built in 1911. Long before the arena was erected, this spot was already used for courses landaises. Back then, carts were arranged in a circle, for use as benches for spectators watching the competitors try to dodge the horns of bulls or cows (whence the old-fashioned term, “char-à-banc” (literally, “bench cart”)). The arena was formerly known as “the amphitheatre of the course landaise square”. Built using stone from Mugron and Angoulême, it has 400 seats in covered stands. The arena, a stop along Mugron’s heritage trail, still hosts courses landaises in the summertime, for local fêtes. As a curious detail, it has a home built into its outer wall.
Bonus: Behind the arena, enjoy a magnificent view of the Adour and its alluvial plains.
