The arrondissement of Muret is an arrondissement of France. It is part of the Haute-Garonne département in the Occitanie region. Its capital is the city of Muret.

History[change | change source]

When the Haute-Garonne department was created in 1790, Muret was one of the districts of the department and, with the creation of arrondissements in 1800, the arrondissement of Muret was part of that original department, but it was eliminated in 1803 and, in 1806, became again an arrondissement.[1]

In 1926, the arrondissement of Muret was eliminated again but, in 1942, it was made again an arrondissement.[1]

Geography[change | change source]

It is the smallest of the arrondissements of the department, with an area of 1,639 km2 (633 sq mi),[2] but it is the second in population with 215,606 inhabitants and a density of 131.5 inhabitants/km²[3]

The arrondissement is bordered to the northeast by the arrondissement of Toulouse, to the south by the Ariège (Occitanie) department, to the southwest by the arrondissement of Saint-Gaudens and to the northwest by the Gers (Occitanie) department.
