The Tarn Riverbanks
The Left Bank of the Tarn has been densely inhabited since the High Middle Ages. It is called the "Combe" (valleys) district.

Topographically speaking, the name invokes the "gutter" shape that tapers down to the Tarn. Life in the Combes area was defined by inhabitants' relationship with the river, which supplied much of their livelihood.

A product of urban growth, the Old Bridge (pont-Vieux), built in the 11th century to ease the flow of traffic and facilitate trade, led to the development of the "du-Bout-du-Pont" suburb ("End-of-Bridge") on the Right Bank, today the Madeleine neighborhood.The street Engueysse, which bears the surname of the Engueysse family, was until the end of the 18th century a vital thoroughfare for goods moving from Vielh Port and the Old Bridge towards the city and Place de la Pile.
