heading west
Located to the south-west of Mont de Marsan, Campagne is characterized by a Romanesque church whose weather vane makes it special. The inhabitants of the village are very proud of it.


It is also an opportunity to discover the Ferme Marquenry, which produces spirulina. A good reason to stop to regain strength.

Saint-Pandelon church

Romanesque church restored in the 19th century whose bell tower is adorned with a magnificent weather vane. She is very curious: a salamander versus a duck. The history of this weather vane is controversial: the lord of the village, from Guitard (guit, in Gascon), would have argued with the village priest.

If the salamander is pointing west…rain is not far away. If the duck points its beak…it’s the opposite.

Campenois are proud of it!


The paintings of Louis Anselme Longa

They are in the choir of the church. Three paintings represent the important moments in the life of Saint Pantaleon (first miracle, conversion of his father and martyrdom of Pantaleon). He also painted the Holy Trinity as well as the four evangelists and the roof of the choir.


Saint-Pandelon fountain

It is located at the back of the church and would have the virtue of making latecomers speak... But it is usually dry.


The so-called Saint Martin d’Oney quarry

During the Lower Miocene period, in the Tertiary era, 20 million years ago, the ocean covered a large part of the Landes department; As it receded, over the centuries the waters left abundant marine and lacustrine deposits very rich in fossils, which sedimented into a stone that has been quarried since the 18th century.

In the 1990s, the discovery in the quarry of very numerous and high-quality fossil species still interested regional and national paleontologists.

A la période du Miocène inférieur, à l’ère tertiaire, il y a 20 millions d’année, l’océan recouvrait une grande partie du département des Landes ; En se retirant, au cours des siècles les eaux ont abandonné d’abondants dépôts marins et lacustres très riches en fossiles, qui se sont sédimentés en une pierre qui est exploitée depuis le XVIIIème siècle.
