The best known thing of the region, however, is the most famous cheese of France, Roquefort - a blue cheese made from sheep's milk. The southern region is very popular among tourists for years. In the Pyrenees, rising to 3,000 meters, with several attractive National Parks along the Spanish border, you will find beautiful ski resorts that attracts many hikers in summer as well. But the biggest tourist attraction is of course the world famous pilgrimage centre of Lourdes.

The capital Toulouse, often called the pink city, because of the warm colour of the local brick. The UNESCO World Heritage sites Albi, a historic town in the Tarn with a unique brick cathedral and Conques with one of the most beautiful Romanesque churches in France with many sculptures.
