Moissac tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Those who love Romanesque art are in for a real treat in Moissac for it is home to Abbaye St-Pierre which served as a model for other religious buildings in the south of France.  The south portal is particularly stunning and depicts St John's vision of the Apocalypse. 

Moissac sits on the north bank of the Tarn which provides the perfect setting for the much venerated jazz festival in July and classical concerts in July and August.  To add to the attractiveness of this town are the orchards and vineyards of sweet Chasselas grapes which surround it.  Moissac also has its own marina built in 1991 which adds a certain sense of chic to the place.

Moissac is a useful starting point for the Gorges du Tarn with a daytrip to the pink-brick bastide town of Montauban an absolute must!
