Ariège

In the south of the region, Ariège occupies a central position in the Pyrenean mountain range. The history of this département, on the border with Catalonia and Andorra, is marked by the lineage of the counts of Foix and by Catharism. Travelling around the mountains here gives one a real sense of freedom and fulfilment, being close to nature that has remained wild and unspoilt.
