Midi-Pyrenees Tourism

There are plenty of breathtaking things to see in the Midi-Pyrenees from the religious sights of Moissac abbey and Lourdes to the wonderful village of cliff-hanging Rocamadour and 13th century 'bastide' of Cordes-sur-Ciel.

The 'bastides', or new towns as they were called in the Middle Ages, of Gascony and the Albigensian area should definitely be on your 'must visit' list.

Bastides in Gascony:
Whether circular, semi-circular or square, the bastides of Gascony distinguish themselves by their diversity. Here is a 10-stage discovery tour of the land of d'Artagnan.

Bastides in the Albigensian Area:
Discover some of the most beautiful bastides in the Midi-Pyrenees region; between Albi and Montauban.

Exceptional feats of transportation architecture include the Canal du Midi and the motorway viaduct at Millau.

The Midi-Pyrenees region is also famous for foie gras, tender lamb from Gers and Roquefort cheese and to wash it down there's wines from Cahors, Fronton, Gaillac and Madiran with Armagnac brandy to complete your gastronomic feast.
