Ambialet is a commune of the Tarn department in southern France. This pretty and spectacular village is thought by many visitors to France to be one of the treasures of the region - if not the whole country.
Ambialet's castle was a stronghold of the Cathars and was sacked during the middle ages by Simon de Montfort.It is also home to a campus of Saint Francis University, Loretto, Pennsylvania. Classes are held in the centuries-old former Franciscan Monastery in Ambialet, in Paris, France, and at Champollion campus of the University of Albi. All classes are taught in English.
