It's located at the castle of Castelmore, where the famous musketeer was born, in the Gers department. Meanwhile, at the foot of Castelnau-de-Montmiral, the fireplaces at the castle of Mayragues are lavishly decorated.

With its wooden benches on either side, he loved to settle down there to read as a child.
