Midi-Pyrenées, the largest region in France, has 8 departments: Ariège, Aveyron, Gers, Haute-Garonne, Hautes-Pyrénées, Lot, Tarn, and Tarn-et-Garonne. Its capital is Toulouse, where the eclectic French band Zebda originates. The band loves their hometown so much, they even wrote a song about it! Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, author of the famous French book Le petit prince was also from Toulouse. The region was created specifically for its capital, like several of the other regions in France. The affamed Roquefort cheese comes from the Midi-Pyrénées region.
