The Languedoc-Roussillon region is a former administrative region in the south of France. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the east, the Pyrenees mountains to the south, and the Massif Central to the north and west. In 2016, the region was merged with the Midi-Pyrénées region to form the new region of Occitanie.
The Languedoc-Roussillon region is known for its diverse landscapes, ranging from the rugged coastline of the Mediterranean to the vineyards and rolling hills of the interior. The region is also home to several large cities, including Montpellier, Nîmes, and Perpignan.
One of the most iconic landmarks in the region is the Pont du Gard, a Roman aqueduct that spans the Gardon River. Other notable historical sites include the medieval city of Carcassonne and the Roman amphitheater in Nîmes.
The region is also known for its cuisine, which includes seafood dishes, cured meats, and cheeses, as well as local wines, such as Côtes du Roussillon and Corbières.
The region offers a unique blend of history, culture, and natural beauty that attracts visitors from all over the world.
