Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Tarn

Located at an altitude of 320 m, the heights of this small village give you, in clear weather, the impression of being on a balcony with view on almost the whole chain of Pyrenees.

The "community" of Puechoursy has existed since at least the seventeenth century. In 1696, under Louis XIV, the municipality deposited its coat of arms during the constitution of the Hozier armory preserved in the reading room of the manuscript department of the National Library - references: L.D.-M.P. 560, C.P. 1945.

The heraldic definition of the coat of arms is as follows: "Argent, to a bear of passing sand, on a small mountain of Vert, to the chief azure loaded with a fleur-de-lys of gold."

In Occitan, the name of the commune is Puèg Orsin, which is well related to the coat of arms. The reason for the presence of a bear on the coat of arms could not be found (presence of bears? Existence of a bear watchman?).
