Occitanie is a region in Southern France established in 2016, uniting former regions of Midi-Pyrénées and Languedoc-Roussillon. The Pyrénées-Orientales and Hautes-Pyrénées are the main geographical areas of this large region bordering Spain and bathed by the Mediterranean Sea on the west side, which has become a favourite tourist destination. Besides outstanding landscapes, Occitanie offers recreation in the mountains, water sports on the many rivers, sunny beaches and also an important religious site for pilgrims: Notre-Dame de Lourdes.
