BAGNERES-DE-LUCHON, France -- A gastronomical, sporting and cultural glance at Stage 8 of the Tour de France on Saturday:Region: The 184-kilometer (114-mile) stage began in Pau in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques department, crossed four mountain passes of the Hautes-Pyrenees -- including the legendary Col du Tourmalet -- and concluded in the thermal spa town of Bagneres-de-Luchon in the Haute-Garonne department.Baguette and butter: Defending champion Chris Froome won the stage and claimed the yellow jersey with a daring downhill attack from the top of the final climb, the Col de Peyresourde.

In the overall standings, Froome leads Adam Yates and Joaquim Rodriguez by 16 seconds overall.Plat du jour: Upon special demand, chef Jean-Pierre Saint-Martin at Le Viscos hotel and restaurant in the picturesque Pyrenean village of Saint-Savin will prepare presse de porc, a dish made with such fine pork that the meat can be cooked rare. Saint-Martin accompanies the presse with macaroni pasta filled with a rich truffle sauce.Culture: The pilgrimage town of Lourdes, which was located 35 kilometers into the stage, is the home of a Roman Catholic shrine where many faithful seek miracles. The Lourdes grotto is where an illiterate peasant girl, St. Bernadette, said she had visions of the Virgin Mary in 1858. About 6 million people, many of them ill, visit Lourdes every year to pray and drink its spring water, which believers say has healing powers.Vin du jour: From the foothills of the Pyrenees, Madiran is a well-structured red featuring hints of coffee, cocoa, and vanilla.

Scaling five mountain passes, the 184.5-kilometer (115-mile) route concludes with a beyond category uphill finish in the tiny Alpine principality of Andorra.
