Midi-Pyrénées - Historic Region of France

Midi-Pyrénées is a former region of France. An area in the southwest of France, halfway between the Atlantic seaboard and the Mediterranean. The region included the departments of Ariège, Averyon, Haute-Garonne, Gers, Lot, Hautes- Pyrénées, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne. With the re-ordering of the administrative regions at the end of 2015, from 2016 Midi-Pyrénées was combined with Languedoc-Roussillon to form the region now known as Occitanie.
