Hotels in Montauban

Montauban Details

Montauban is located in the Tarn-et-Garonne department of France along the banks of the River Tarn. The economy of centuries past was based on cloth manufacturing, following its participation in the Hundred Years War. A fortified bridge built in the 14th century offers an excellent view of the town. After selecting your Montauban hotel through, be sure to make train reservations to access the town via the Bordeaux-Toulouse rail line.Medieval origins are apparent in the layout of the town and its beautiful center square. An arcaded front, restaurants, shops, and the Réunion des Musées Nationaux canbe found at the 18th century Place Nationale. The older Church of St. Jacques features a Gothic tower and the Cathedral of Notre Dame contains an Ingres painting amongst other artwork. The Ingres Museum is also a popular attraction. Many hotels in Montauban are historical monuments themselves, such as the Crowne Plaza, which is housed in a 17th century convent.
