Almont-les-Junies is located some 20 km east of Figeac and 40 km north-east of Rodez. The commune can be accessed by road D508 which runs east from Flagnac through the commune and changes to road D606 before exiting east and forming the south-eastern border as it runs south-east to Noailhac. The D183 road also runs through the south of the commune running west to east. The village can be reached by a number of country roads which cover most of the commune. The most direct perhaps is the Graville-et-Courbies road which runs south from the D508.
The commune contains both large areas of farmland as well as mountain slopes with forests.
There are many streams in the commune - the southern border is marked by the Rousseau de Limou which flows into the Lot river just west of the commune. The Lot river itself also forms the northern border of the commune and all of the many streams flow into this river.
There are a number of hamlets and villages in the commune. These are:
- La Mole Haute
- La Plane
- Le Fau
- Les Clementies
- Sainte Catherine
On 1 April 1993, the town of Almon-les-Junies was renamed Almont-les-Junies with a "t" to be closer to the Latin root of Almontis. Road signs in the area remained unchanged for some years.

In 2009, the commune had 490 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1] [Note 2]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
- In the census table and the graph, by convention in Wikipedia, and to allow a fair comparison between five yearly censuses, the principle has been retained for subsequent legal populations since 1999 displayed in the census table and the graph that shows populations for the years 2006, 2011, 2016, etc., as well as the latest legal population published by INSEE
