Gaillac is a millennium town in a region that has grown and made wine since Roman times. It is also a market town and the commercial hub of the northwest of Tarn.
Set in the glorious south of France, on the Tarn river in the midi-Pyrenees, Gaillac is some 31 miles northeast of Toulouse and 15 miles west of Albi, making it convenient to reach by hire car.
The fame of Gaillac is that of the vineyards that enclose the town. The town's renowned wines are held in high esteem all around the world, and visitors to this town and the area will have plentiful opportunities to taste and purchase this produce.
The major tourist draw of the town itself is the imposing Abbey Saint Michael which dates back to the 10th century. This massive structure was significantly enhanced during the 13th and 16th centuries and restored at the end of the last century.
Further attractions of Gaillac include a 17th century chateau as well as a beautiful old town, for the most part built in the same red-brick as Albi and Toulouse. You will also discover a couple of stud work houses scattered across the old part of town.
Public transportation in and around the town is a possibility but is usually rather slow. Visitors to Gaillac should therefore arrange car hire before leaving home, especially if they wish to explore the lovely surrounding vineyards. Booking your hire car online is a cost-effective option to indulge in the region's eye-catching landscape.
