Situated on the Sauveterre Causse, the village of St Rome de Dolan is particularly picturesque, with its narrow streets criss-crossed by stone vaults, its houses with their courtyards and stone staircases, and its romanesque church.  In addition, the village enjoys a magnificent view over the Tarn Gorges, 500 metres below.  It was here that Pierre Monestier (1855-1925), political representative of Florac, was born.  Monestier was later responsible for the Ministry of Public Works and worked to ensure the construction of a road through the Tarn Gorges (1906)


Extremely popular with tourists, many tens of thousands use this road each year.  Today, visitors can stop at the old home of Monestier, which now serves as a hostel.
