Description

This tour shows you the highlights of the old town. Your guide will show you the most interesting parts of it's very rich history. You will see the town hall, the Romanesque basilica St.Sernin and the Gothic church Les Jacobins. You will hear interesting facts about the history as well as stories linked to the rich past of Toulouse.

Toulouse, located in the South of France, is also called „la ville rose“ - the Pink City. Many buildings are traditionally built with red bricks, as you will notice during your tour. The town hall shows many aspects of the rich history as well as legends and stories.The basilica St. Sernin is the biggest Romanesque church in Europe. This beautiful church is well maintained. It is part of the UNESCO world heritage and is situated on the St.James path. Its architecture is typical for Toulouse.

Discover the impressive architecture of the Gothic church Jacobins. Its ceiling is supported by a column with 22 branches, which is called 'the palm tree' and an imposing row of high columns.

Your guide will give you information about the Dominicans, Thomas of Aquinas and the Cathars. Other subjects covered will be the woad (a dying product) and of course the Airbus industry.
