More pictures, description and general tourist information about Tarn Valley.

Between Albi, the pink city - with its beautiful old brick-built centre, the Toulouse-Lautrec museum and its Cathedral - and Millau, in the center of Parc des Grands Causses, you will be walking alongside the Tarn river in a steep sided valley. Down in the valley  between two hilly plateaux which rise up to 700m height, you'll get the feeling of being up in the mountains. The river flows swiftly to the West through the valley, also called "La Vallée de l'Amitiée", a very friendly place to stay and hike. There are some very old castles like Brousse-le-Chateau, Coupiac, St. Izaire and  picturesque villages like Ambialet, St. Rome-de-Tarn, Montjaux and Le Minier. For centuries life and local trade  has centered around these places.
From Millau, a pleasant small Mediterranean alike city, also the gateway to the better known canyons of the Gorges du Tarn and a centre for activity holidays, you'll start the Tarn Valley walk under the viaduct from where you will be heading further downstream. From the second half of June the chirring sound of cicades will go all along with you as if in Provence. The old medieval villages and towns of the Gorges des Raspes du Tarn on your way will add to your feeling connected with ancient times.

Find here some pictures with the views on Sud-Aveyron.

PARC NATUREL REGIONAL DES GRANDS CAUSSES
Home base of La Ligne Verte.

If you want the charms of France and avoid touristy bustle this region will assure you'll get it; it has been designated a National Park and its riches are protected.
Here you'll find breathing space for taking your time far away from hustle and bustle of modern day living while savouring the French cuisine and way of life. Aveyron and Tarn give you a traditional welcome, amid  beautiful scenery, dramatic landscapes and picturesque villages. A land of stone, a land of water: gorges, valleys, lakes, rivers all bathed in sunlight under a radiant blue sky: the land would seem to have been created for out-door pursuits and relaxation.

Close to Millau, in center of Parc des Grands Causses, worlds highest (343m) viaduct now connects the Lévézou plateau and the Causse du Larzac, as part of highway A71 from Clermont Ferrand to Montpellier. See the viaduct against the Grands Causses scenery !
