Discover the Tarn-et-Garonne

Montauban is the most populous town in the department and its capital. It is a city with an important artistic and historical heritage, full of architectural treasures that can be discovered by strolling through the streets. The Ingres Bourdelle Museum, formerly the bishop's palace, presents the major works of the two artists. A nice way to get to know the Tarn-et-Garonne.

Discover the ancient abbey of Saint-Pierre de Moissac, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Pilgrimage Route to Santiago de Compostela, dating from the 7th and 15th centuries. Considered one of the most beautiful ensembles of French architecture, a thousand years of history seem to have no hold on this place. Take a look at the fine sculptures evoking biblical episodes and the tympanum of the entrance portal, a true jewel of Romanesque art.

Still in the religious heritage, the Cistercian abbey of Belleperche is located in Cordes-Tolosannes. Situated on the banks of the Garonne, it is an exceptional site which today hosts the Museum of Tableware and the "Earth and Tea" exhibition.

Three villages are must-sees in the Tarn-et-Garonne. Firstly, Lauzerte, a fortified town built around the church of Saint Barthélemy, where you can discover vestiges dating back to the Middle Ages which make the village a remarkable stage on the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Just like Auvillar with its splendid triangular square, its market hall and the corbelled houses.

"But we are in a museum" exclaimed Viollet le Duc when he discovered the medieval town of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val, in the middle of the Aveyron Gorges. Old portals with gothic arches, winding and narrow streets, it is here twelve centuries of history that you will walk through the historic town.

Finally, the Tarn-et-Garonne can also be explored on foot, with over 2,000 kilometres of walks and hikes along the mountainous paths of the Aveyron Gorges and the banks of the Tarn and Garonne rivers. You can also explore by bike on the Canal des Deux Mers, an 800-kilometre greenway linking the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and running alongside the Canal du Midi and the Canal de Garonne. You can cycle along the water's edge, protected by plane trees, a pleasant ride for the whole family.
