Eauze, situated in the middle of rolling vineyards, is the natural `capital of Armagnac' and its importance is linked with the growing interest in this excellent brandy. But it was not always so.

It was founded by the Romans (Latin name Elusa and became a major administrative capital for the area, with its own bishop. Alas its importance came to a sticky end with the invasion of the barbarians and despite the founding of an abbey in 980 AD Eauze had to wait for the 20th century to recover its status.

An important Roman treasure was found on the site of the old Roman city (near the station) in 1985, attesting to the town's former wealth. Today it is a gentle and pleasant Gascogne town much appreciated by visitors - especially on Thursdays, the market-day.
