"We travel for years without really knowing what we are looking for, we wander in the noise, entangled with desires or repentances and we suddenly arrive in one of these two or three places which await each of us in this world. The traveler who, from the terrace of Cordes, looks at the summer night knows that he does not need to go further and that, if he wants, the beauty here, day after day, will take him away. to all loneliness. " (Albert Camus)
A real gem in the Tarn, and a major European heritage site, this fortified village built on the top of a hill, giving the impression of launching an assault on the skies, is a must see that will take your breath away. It is also a place of inspiration for many artists who have settled there for its charm and for its view of the surroundings. Walk through these mythical streets, observe the sculpted facades, cross the thresholds of the fortified gates of the city, and climb to the top of Cordes-sur-Ciel to admire all its splendour.
