Other sight. In street.

Castle of Brousse of the 9th 12th 13th 15th centuries, the old stronghold of Arpajon, in Brousse-le-Chteau, one of the most beautiful villages of France.
It is one of the fortresses best preserved of Rouergue. The enclosure is almost intact.

Saint-Jacques le Majeur church, 15th century.

In the south of the plateau of Lvezou, raspes are wild canyons, dug by the Tarn on forty kilometers, from Saint-Rome-de-Tarn to Brousse-le-Chteau.

The Tarn takes its source close to the hamlet of the Hospital on the territory of the commune of Pont-de-Montvert,on the Lozere mount, in Lozere, and is thrown after 380 km of course, in the Garonne close to Castelsarrasin, in Tarn-et-Garonne.
