The Heart of Gascony
Gascony refers to ancient territories in South-West France that ceased to exist after the French Revolution and cannot be found on modern day maps. The Duchy of Gascony was formed in 852 and joined with Aquitaine in 1036. It was subjected to English rule in the 12C for some 300 years and many Bastide and walled towns built during this time can still be seen today. Although the region of Gascony does not officially exist now, local people still proudly proclaim to be "Vrai Gascons".
