Tarascon has shops and restaurants and is in a beautiful setting surrounded by hills. This is an area riddled with caves and grottoes and the mountain road to Grotte-de-Niaux leads straight into the mouth of the cave. Far inside are remarkable twenty thousand year old drawings.
Further down the valley, Foix makes a powerful impact on first sight. Set at the confluence of two rivers, it is overlooked by the three towers of the feudal castle perched above the town. In the old part of the village, medieval timbered houses line a labyrinth of lanes and narrow streets and there are two lovely 19th century covered markets.
