The Pyrenees Mountains in southwest France draw as many visitors as their eastern competitors, the Alps, and have a distinct atmosphere that separates the area from the rest of France. Tarbes is a city of roughly 50,000 inhabitants in the Hautes-Pyrenees prefecture within easy reach of the region's biggest city, Toulouse.
Getting to Tarbes Rail Station is convenient and fast with high speed TGV trains on the Paris-Montparnasse line, as well as direct routes to Bordeaux. Regular speed Corail trains make the journey to Paris' Austerlitz Station. The TER Aquitaine and the TER Midi-Pyrenees lines have many daily trains to other cities in the area such as Toulouse and Hendaye.
Tarbes is home to some beautiful historical buildings such as the Hotel de Ville, a beautiful place for a stroll. The city's art museum, La Musee des Beaux Arts, is located in le Jardin Massey, a beautiful public garden. Good photo opportunities abound at la Fontaine des Quatre Vallees, a monumental fountain at la Place Marcadieu. There are also many cathedrals and churches in Tarbes, the most visited being the Cathedrale Notre Dame de la Sede.
