View into the Tarn valley from Peyre, the picturesque village of tuff. In the background you can see the Millau bridge. This part of the Tarn valley is full of gentle rising slopes. The villages have a kindly southern charme.

In the lovely village of Peyre which is classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Narrow streets, the beautiful houses of tuff and a unique view to the Millau bridge make this village worth seeing. On the photo you can see the troglodyte church which has been built directly against the rock, therfore the rock forms a wall and the roof of the church.

The highest and most beautiful bridge in the world is a technical masterwork. With a length of nearly 2,5 km and a height of 343 m (Eiffel Tower at Paris: 321 m) the bridge integrates harmonically in the picturesque Tarn valley. You see all the 7 piers of the bridge. The piers have a distance of 342 m between each other. The deck consists of steel.
