Dating from the 15th century this work of art is unique in its composition and its breadth anticipates the Renaissance in its modernity

- Become a “Tarn Ambassador”

Set up by the Departmental Tourist Committee of the Tarn and the Conseil General the “Tarn Ambassador” initiative is a novel experience. The basic idea is simple: it is about making you discover or rediscover the most beautiful tourist sites in the Department. Holders of the “Tarn Ambassador” card will have free access to all member sites.

Conditions of membership
The card is restricted totally to Tarn residents. It is non-transferable and there is only one card per household (same name, same address). The card is valid from the 31 March 2008 until the 31 March 2009

To obtain a card
All you have to do is to fill in the following form and enter the reason for your request in the space “your message” or print the form and send it by post to the Comite Departmental du Tourisme du Tarn, Moulins Albigeois, BP225 81006 ALBI (* these boxes must be completed so that we can reply to you). Only the first 10,000 requests can be accepted. Condition of use : the card offers free and unlimited access to the holder of the card throughout the period of operation of “Tarn Ambassador”. Free access is granted for normal visits and not for special exhibitions. The holder must present him/herself at the welcome desk with the non-transferable card and proof of identity.

The “Tarn Ambassador” card does not give priority access to attractions and cannot be used to by-pass queues. In the case of improper use the manager of the site has the right to inform the Departmental Tourist office.
