The most beautiful spots in the Midi-Pyrénées
Tarn-et-Garonne – The department Tarn-et-Garonne is also referred to as the Tuscany of France. The landscape with the beautiful limestone plateaus of the Quercy has sloping hills. The sparsely populated department contains five different regions: to the north are the hills of Quercy, in the north-west lies the valley of the Garonne, in the south-west are the hills of Cascogne, a region where garlic, grains and sunflowers are grown, in the north-east there are the river straits of the Aveyron with the limestone plateaus of the Quercy over them, and in the south-east are the slopes of the Tarn and the Garonne.
In Tarn-et-Garonne you will find fortifications dating back to the 15th century such as Tournon D ‘Agenais, Montflaquin and Penne d‘Agenais. The region has large wine-growing districts such as Gaillac, Cahors en Frontonnais. A true wine-region – just about every village has its own wine caves available for viewing. The capital of Tarn-et-Garonne is Montauban, where a large international jazz festival is held every year. Montauban is also the birthplace of the painter Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (Montauban, 29 August 1780 – Paris, 14 January 1867). His paintings and drawings are on display at the Musée Ingres.
