Puylaurens

The Medieval village of Puylaurens is perched on top of the tallest hill of the area and dominates the countryside, its church steeple a pretty landmark. In 1792, as the French Republic emerged, an eminent Puylaurentais Troubadour christened the young republic “Marianne” a popular name of the time, to evoke youth, beauty and the vigour of the French citizens.
Thus was born the emblem of France from this small village in the Tarn.
Puylaurens today keeps all of its traditional charm whilst offering most modern amenities; cafes, restaurants, shops of all kinds, including a pharmacy, a bank and a post office. The weekly Wednesday market brings in fresh produce from the whole region, notably the delicious organic beef, veal, lamb and porc for which the area is famous.
