Discover Montauban

Clad in orange brick, Montauban is a town of art and history. The old town centre boasts a mixture of traditional shops, boutiques and mansions built by wealthy merchants. In the heart of the orchard valley of the Tarn and founded in 1144, Montauban is one of the oldest bastide towns in Occitanie. The town is also proud of being the hometown of painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and sculptor Antoine Bourdelles.


Around the Place Nationale, a must-see in itself, pedestrian streets will guide you on a trendy art and history tour.

In Montauban, you'll enjoy :

  • Going to the market on Saturday morning, on the Allées Mortarieu, one of the most opulent markets in the area.
  • Heading to the Montauban canal port (15 minutes' walk from the station) for drinks at the Cabanes du port (open air summer bar).
  • Renting a bike for a 12-kilometre ride along the Canal de Montech which joins the Canal des Deux Mers in this village.
