The village of Puycelci-Gresigne, in Tarn, about 25 kilometres east of Montauban, is counted one of les plus beaux villages de France.

Although it was besieged numerous times, the village has remained miraculously unscathed, and there is even a section of the ramparts nearly a kilometre long along which you can walk and get a unique view of both the village and the surrounding countryside.

The church of St Corneille was originally built in the 14th century, but has many additions in a harmonious mixture of styles, including a superb baroque altar-screen.
