Facts on Aquitaine Province of France

It is bounded to the south by Spain, to the east by the Midi-Pyrenees, to the north by Poitou-Charentes and Limousin and to the west by the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Biscay.

Some of the major cities in Aquitaine include Bordeaux, which is the regions capital city, Biarritz, Pau, and Perigueux.

The Cote d'Argent is one of the most famous coasts in France and attracts thousands of visitors each year.

The south of the region includes parts of the Pyrenees mountains, which is a very popular holiday destination, but other places in the Aquitaine region include the largest sand dunes in Europe called The Dune de Pilat and The Bassin d'Arcachon, which is a large lagoon famous for its oyster farming.

French is as usual the main language of the region and the only officially recognised language in the whole of France, but other native languages include the Basque language in the far south of the region, and various forms of Occitan which includes the Perigord variety.

The grape is by far the largest product of the region and the main industry is wine making, distilling and by-products, which are not just important to the area as an industry, but also culturally as well.

Forestry is also productive in the north of the region, and this area includes Europe's largest pine forest.
