Tarn et Garonne is a French department of Midi-Pyrenees region that is positioned in the southwest of France.
The Hautes-Pyrénées is a mountainous agricultural landscape of villages, farms, fields, upland pastures and winding mountain roads. On the border between France and Spain, the department is centered on the peak of Mont Perdu.
One of the most famous towns in this department is Lourdes. Following the Apparitions of Our Lady to Bernadette, The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes has developed into a major tourist destination as a Marian city.
Historically the department was part of Bigorre, a county at times independent but later part of Gascony province. Large parts of the area were held by the English after the Treaty of Brétigny, 1360. In the 16th century, it was part of the Huguenot domain of the monarchs of Navarre, brought to France by Henri IV. For its early history, see Bigorre and Gascony.
