The Midi-Pyrénées region covers a large portion of South-West France, between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. It is made up of 8 départements: Ariège, Aveyron, Haute-Garonne, Hautes-Pyrénées, Gers, Lot, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne. Toulouse, its capital city, with 437,000 inhabitants, is France's third-largest university town and the birthplace of Airbus, the world's leading aircraft manufacturer.
The Capitole building, Saint-Sernin basilica, musée des Augustins, musée des Abattoirs modern and contemporary art museum and the Cité de l'Espace are just a few of Toulouse's great attractions.
Great Sites of Midi-Pyrénées
Midi-Pyrénées has gained international fame on account of its Great Sites such as the Millau viaduct, the Pic du Midi and its astronomy observatory, the cirque de Gavarnie, the Canal du Midi and Albi (and the Toulouse-Lautrec museum) which is a Unesco world heritage site, Lourdes and its Marian city, Cahors and Valentré bridge, as well as Conques, Rocamadour, Cordes-sur-Ciel, Moissac, Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges, Marciac and this jazz festival, Figeac, Auch… Midi-Pyrénées features 24 emblematic Great Sites which are rich with historical, cultural or natural interest.
The Midi-Pyrénées is a very spacious region with vast horizons, undulating countryside punctuated with hillsides and valleys and spectacular landscapes such as the gorges du Tarn, gorges de l'Aveyron, Lot valley and Dordogne valley. In the south, the region rests against the Pyrenees mountain range with its great peaks reaching 3,000m altitude, running along the border between France and Spain.
With an average 2,000 hours sunlight per year, Midi-Pyrénées is one of France's sunniest regions. Spring comes early, followed by summer which is often very hot and then a beautiful autumn season which continues until the first mountain snowfalls.
Gourdon (Lot) Gourdon, capital of the Bouriane, is a small picturesque town with many fascinating side streets leading up to the old quarter and church and the Table d'Orientation which has a stunning 360° view over the Bouriane countryside.

The Tuesday and Saturday markets sell local produce to sample amongst which is the famous Fois Gras. There are 5 supermarkets (including a Carrefour) and several boulangeries selling delicious breads, pastries and croissants for breakfast !
