Gère-Bélesten, at the pleasure of good King Henri
The commune consists of two villages joined at the end of the Middle Ages. The old district, Gère, is more picturesque, glued to the mountain. There are two vestiges: the castle of Gère and its Maison Forte.
In Bélesten there is a Romanesque church. The town hall is located in this district.
In that of Monplaisir was a former racecourse where once organized races for spa guests. There is no trace of it today.
An originality: the old railway tunnel was built as a cheese saloir.
A pedestrian and cycling bridge allows to cross the gave d'Ossau to reach the district of Moulaprat on the right bank (Village d'Aste)
