Etappe 13Saint-Girons / Foix

Start 14h45 (Ortszeit)
  • Kommentar von Christian Prudhomme

    Genau 100. Seit der Abschaffung der Halb-Etappen gab es keinen so komprimierten Tagesabschnitt mehr bei der Tour. Hier in der Ariège finden wir einen heftigen Kontrast zum Vortag aber das Terrain ist genauso günstig für – wie ich hoffe - waghalsige Aktionen. Die durch die Kürze der Distanz entstehende Dynamik erhält durch den besonderen Schwierigkeitsgrad der Anstiege weiteres Feuer: vom Col de Latrape über den Col d´Agnes bis hin zur Mur de Péguère mit ihren Steigungen bis zu 18...

Nestled at the foot of the Pyrenees, Ariège is a land rich in its cultural, environmental and economic diversity. It combines traditions deeply rooted in the collective imagination and established industrial expertise. Aeronautical subcontracting and nanotechnologies are today the main assets for the development of the department. The art of living in Ariège has seduced far beyond its borders: in 10 years, some 25,000 new inhabitants have chosen to settle down in the plain or in the mountains of the department.

Notre-Dame de Vic in Oust is the most imposing church in Couserans. Its construction started in the late 11th century on the ruins of an early Christian building.
 

The peddlers shop
Located in the heart of the village of Soueix-Rogalle, the shop evokes the golden age of commerce in the area. It used to supply the mountain villages around with grocery goods and also served as a wholesaler for peddlers. Each shop had its specialty. Soueix was specialized in jewellery, haberdashery and religious objects: rosaries, medals from Lourdes, blessed stones, often destined for Algeria and Spain, where pedlars brought exotic products. About fifteen years ago, the last shopkeepers decided to donate the building to the commune of Soueix. After many months of work, the municipality opened this house to preserve its memory.
