Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, no matter how popular, can only ever give you a glimpse into the broader qualities of a region. So allow time to explore Midi-Pyrenees' other sights and attractions. If you are after more ways to enjoy the region, check out the Church of St Pierre aux Liens and Aurignac Castle in and around Aurignac, which lays roughly 7 miles (11 kilometers) to the east of Martres-Tolosane.
Approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northeast of Martres-Tolosane is Toulouse, a regional city where you can visit University of Toulouse II, Jardin des Plantes and Place Wilson. Sports and Recreation Park Toulouse, Japanese Garden Toulouse and La Prairie Des Filtres are also good places to visit.
History buffs will want to visit the region's fabulous old towns, fortresses and historic bridges. Head to Midi-Pyrenees' history museums, art museums and art galleries. These are excellent spots to spend time, particularly when the weather is unpleasant.
If you like to hit the outdoors in winter, Midi-Pyrenees may be the perfect holiday destination. Grab some gear and go snowboarding and cross-country skiing. There are some cool ways to get into the wide open spaces around Martres-Tolosane. Rock climbing and mountain climbing are just two ways thrill seekers here can get their kicks.
When your time is up in Martres-Tolosane, say farewell the way they do in French, with a hearty "Au revoir / À bientôt."
