The Rougier de Camarès

To the south of the river Tarn you will discover an unusual coloured landscape: the Rougier de Camarès. As its name suggests, the Rougier is so called because of its inimitable red soil that creates an at times desert like landscape. This is where numerous statues-menhirs were found which are now exhibited in the Fenaille Museum in Rodez. You can also contemplate them here in the Statues-Menhirs Abbé Bec Damien Museum in Saint-Crépin.

To visit : The Château de Montaigut dominating the Rougier and offering a magnificent panoramic view.
