Regions of France - Midi-Pyrénées 10.1.1976

Midi-Pyrénées is a historical region in southern France separated from Spain by the Pyrenees Mountains. Its capital, Toulouse, is known for its venerable university, aerospace industry and Romanesque St. Sernin Basilica, part of the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route. Pilgrims also flock to the Grotto of Massabielle in Lourdes, where the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared to Saint Bernadette in 1858.
Thank you Merja.
