The Tarn is a very interesting region photographically speaking, for the diversity of its landscapes. On the banks of the Tarn, the natural sites are very well preserved and offer you beautiful photos of fauna and flora. If you like old stones and authenticity, it is in the perched villages that you will find what you are looking for. And if you are tempted by architectural photos, you will be charmed by the beautiful city of Albi. Let's go for a photo road-trip in the Tarn.

The medieval city of Albi

Castelnau-de-Montmiral

Castelnau-de-Montmiral is a medieval " Castelnau " type town, built on the outskirts of a castle. Unfortunately, that of Montmiral did not survive the French Revolution. But you can still admire the beautiful entrance doors to the Castelnau, dating from the 13th century, its half-timbered houses and its arcaded square. Lovers of old stones will be served!

The Castles of Bruniquel

The Châteaux of Bruniquel are part of the anecdotes of history, which gave rise to true works of art. While many castles were built out of love, some were built out of hate! This is the case of Bruniquel, where a disinherited son ended up building an impressive castle, facing his father's fortifications...

You will take the most representative images, taking a walk along the Agoût. The photo of the colorful facades of the old craftsmen's houses is one of the must-sees.

Cordes-sur-Ciel

Cordes-sur-Ciel is a jewel, set on a hill, in a green setting. The village seems to emerge from the forest. Some days it is surrounded by mists and it feels like it is brushing against the clouds. It’s an enchanting site to photograph, especially at blue hour… The village is definitely worth a visit. It is not for nothing that it has been classified among the “ favorite villages of the French ”!

The vineyards of Gaillac

What's more beautiful than the clean lines of a winery. In the Tarn, the Gaillac Vineyard benefits from sunshine and exposure, which lends itself as well to wine production as to photography. During your walks among the vineyards, you will take perspective photos, reflecting the symmetry and harmony of nature mastered by man. At daybreak, at the golden hour, the light on the vines offers you sublime images.
