The Midi-Pyrenees region
The Midi-Pyrénées is bordered to both the north and south by mountains, and the Pyrenees form a natural frontier with Spain. The Pyrenees National Park, one of the seven national parks in France, covers a 45,700 hectare protected-nature site. The region also boasts three regional nature parks. In the north, in the foothills of the Massif Central, are the Aubrac and Causses mountains, limestone plateaux formed by the water. The caves of Padirac, in the Lot, are considered to be one of Europe's greatest geological curiosities. The Ariège, meanwhile, has an abundance of caves that tell stories about the life of Homo sapiens.
