The department of Tarn is a lovely rural area with nice villages dotted amongst the hills and the three principal mountain ranges lying to the south-east: the Mountains of Lacaune, the Sidobre, and the Montagne Noire, belonging to the Cevennes. The stony and wind-blown slopes of the first named are used for pasture. The highest point of the range and of the department is the Pic de Montalet (about 4150 ft).
Steeped in history, from the Cathar era to the Industrial Revolution, the Tarn department has a rich heritage of fortified villages, castles, churches and museums. While the south-western houses are mostly stone-built, cities from the northwest of the department are often made of the local red brick, typical of the region.
The limestone and sandstone foot-hills are clothed with vines and fruit trees, and are broken by deep alluvial valleys of particular fertility. With the exception of a small portion of the Montagne Noire, which drains into the river Aude, the whole department belongs to the basin of the Garonne.
The eastern portion of the department has a climate similar to that in Auvergne, the severest in France, but not quiet as severe and only a few hardy farmers live there.
Tarn is bounded north and east by Aveyron, southeast by Herault, south by Aude, southwest and west by Haute-Garonne, northwest by Tarn-et-Garonne. The slope of the department is from east to west, and its general character is mountainous or hilly.
