Mont-de-Marsan is a city in south-western France. It is the prefecture or head city of the Landes département, one of five département that make up the Aquitaine region.

Founded in the Middle Ages around the three rivers, Mont-de-Marsan was the main walled city of Landes. Its history has left a legacy that still adorns the city centre today: the Lacataye tower, which houses a museum of sculptures, medieval streets, sections of the old walls, old mansions, an old river port, parks, gardens and flower walks etc. .

The city is located south of the Landes forest, the largest forest in Western Europe. It lies some 130 (80 miles) kilometres due south of the major south-western city of Bordeaux.

According to the latest census, the city had 31,225 inhabitants, called Mons.
