The region of Midi-Pyrénées is composed of 8 départements: Ariège, Aveyron, Gers, Haute-Garonne, Hautes-Pyrénées, Lot, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne. It is located in the south of France with its capital at Toulouse. The Pyrénées are distributed along its southern part, which is adjacent to Spain, and cover much of the départements of Hautes-Pyrénées, Haute-Garonne and Ariège. Forests abound in the mountains, and considerable agriculture is found elsewhere. The regions of Auvergne and Limousin are to its north. Aquitaine is to the west and Languedoc-Roussillon is to the east.
