The Route Européenne d'Artagnan

Transnational horseriding, hiking and cycling trails under the aegis of d'Artagnan under development, with five routes departing from Lupiac.

D'Artagnan is undoubtedly the best known Frenchman in the world. He appears in novels, the best known being that of Alexandre Dumas, and also in numerous films using his image as an example of his dash, courage and charm.

This picture is built on the values of cooperation, solidarity, on the greater value of the group as opposed to that of the individual. A renowned horseman, d'Artagnan, born in Lupiac, in the Gers and killed at the siege of Maastricht (Holland), travelled throughout Europe in the service of King Louis XIV.
