Garonne

The Garonne (Latin: Garumna, Occitan: Garona) is a river in southwest France.

The 650 km long river rises in the Val d'Aran (Spanish Pyrenees), flowing via Toulouse towards Bordeaux, where it flows into the Gironde, a sea arm of the Bay of Biscay. In its flow, it is joined by two other major rivers, the Lot[?] and the Dordogne to become the Gironde and join the Atlantic Ocean.
