Ambialet / Tarn
Discover the upper Tarn Valley
It is in the high valley of the Tarn, in the middle of a 3 kilometre long meander, that the peninsula of Ambialet is shown, dominated by a priory. From the top of the priory, the view is breathtaking towards the plateaux of the Albigensian region and the hills of Ségala. An exceptional natural site, the scene of magnificent discoveries, of remarkable fauna and flora in the heart of a preserved nature.
On foot, by bicycle or mountain bike, on horseback or by canoe, there is no lack of walks.
At the edges of the paths, you will find the remains of ancient settlements (dwellings, mills, low walls, huts, etc.). Lovers of old stones will also appreciate the richness of Ambialet's built heritage with its four churches, its priory and the ruins of its fortified castle...
