Tarn is a department in the Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées region of France. The region is close to the bustling city of Toulouse and the beautiful town of Carcassonne. The backdrop to this stunning region ranges from forested areas to rolling fields. Some of the highlights of this region include the Cathedral of St Cecile which is the largest brick building in the world, the rose coloured city of Albi (the rose colour comes from the clay of the local area that was used to build the city) and the Palais de la Berbie which is a fortress built in the middle ages. Away from the towns, there is also the Natural Regional Park of the Haut-Languedoc.
