The Midi-Pyrenees region
The largest region in France, Midi Pyrenees is an essentially rural area, stretching from the highlands of the Massif Central in the north, to the crests of the Pyrenees, on the Spanish border, in the south. Its capital and only big metropolitan area is Toulouse, on the river Garonne.The region also has sizeable vineyards, such as in the areas round Gaillac, north of Toulouse, and the Armagnac area, which lies partly in Midi-Pyrenees, partly in Aquitaine. At the southern end of the region, the Pyrenees, rising to over 3000 metres on the Spanish border, offer all the attractions of a high mountain area - in both summer and winter. This is real mountain country, where wooded foothills give way to mountain pastures and open terrain at higher altitudes. This area is popular with skiers in winter, and with ramblers and other outdoor enthusiasts in the summer months; it also containes one of the few National Parks in France., as well as the world-famous pilgrimage centre of Lourdes.
The Tarn is an area which has plenty of diversity - forests, mountains, vineyards, alluvial plains and which benefits from its proximity to Toulouse and Montpellier.Rich in historical heritage, discover castles, churches, museums and the bastide towns built in the 13th century to encourage settlement of empty areas before the Hundred Years War.The Tarn covers the Sidobre which is part of the Parc Naturel du Haut-Languedoc, known for its stunning granite formations.This same granite is used in modern buildings today, i.e. the Arch de la Defense in Paris.
