In the 18th Century, the Tarn-et-Garonne department was a prosperous area known for its woollen and silk industry. Today, tertiary industry has taken hold due to the expansion of Toulouse and its suburbs.
The department's agricultural industry has cooperatives producing some good Syrahs, Gamays and Cabernets. The department owes its name to the two great rivers that run across it; La Garonne flows from the Southeast to the Northwest and Le Tarn ends its journey in Montauban.
These rivers offer all water sports including sailing, fishing and canoeing. Hiking, golf, cycling, horse riding and climbing are also popular activities.
