Ariège is divided into 4 regions -- the Couserans, which has a distinct identity, the foothills and the plain or the "doors to the Ariège" in relation to Toulouse, the "Cathar Pyrenees" which is considered part of Languedoc and the Foix and High Ariège that is bisected by the Ariège River. The shaded area of the map represents the mountainous part of the department.


Many thanks to these photographers
