A wild stream, a river… two strong characters!
A real link between the Pyrenees and the Atlantic, the Garonne has shaped the landscape but also the men and women of Occitania. With its capricious and wild side, it has taught the local people patience and respect for nature. Its legendary floods and its often difficult navigability command respect.
The Tarn has nothing to envy the Garonne. Once navigable up to the confluence, it was a major communication and commercial axis during the previous centuries.
