The Foothills of the Ariège Pyrenees

portesdariegeThis area represents the plains and foothills of Ariège and is referred to as "the doors of Ariège" because it is quickly reached from Toulouse. Most of the population and commercial acitivity is concentrated around the town of Pamiers. The Lèze and Arize valleys are more agricultural, and in between these rivers are the rolling hills dotted with farmsteads.
