The Midi-Pyrenees region covers the mountainous section of the Pyrenees along the border between France and Spain, and a large swathe running northwards into areas that are remote from the Pyrenees mountains - through Gers (Gascony) and into the Lot Department (just east of the Dordogne).
Typically visitors either come for the mountains of the south, the beautiful countryside and history of the north, or the calm attractions of the Gers (Gascony) region in the centre of the region. The capital of the Midi-Pyrenees region is Toulouse, the attractive red-brick city to the north of the region.
