Comments: Saint-Girons is a commune in the Ariège department in southwestern France. The city is named after Saint Girons, a saint from fifth-century Landes who evangelized Novempopulania. In the ninth century some of his relics were supposedly buried in Saint Girons´s Church around which the city later developed. Unlike its close neighbour Saint-Lizier, Saint-Girons isn´t an ancient city, although there was a Lucus on its present territory where some Roman finds were made during the construction of the train station. Modern-days district Le Luc is considered to owe its name to this ancient lucus. For more info about this travel see
