    Discover real treasures

    Treasures of Antiquity, mansion houses from the Renaissance or even modern and contemporary art: Toulouse is a city with a rich heritage and 2000 years of history to explore.




    Exceptional heritage

    Brick provides the building blocks

    With its pretty nickname of La Ville Rose, Toulouse surprises visitors with its colourful tones and its beauty. You will adore wandering around willy-nilly in the streets of the city. For instance, there are around one hundred mansion houses whose courtyards and façades await discovery. Then there are the contrasting monuments, such as the Jacobins Convent, a jewel of southern Gothic art, which is a haven of peace in the city centre.
    There is also Le Capitole, with its monumental façade of brick and stone, which is situated in its emblematic Toulouse square. The splendid Roman basilica of Saint-Sernin, listed as World Heritage by UNESCO, is one of the unmissable stop-offs along the Ways of St James, whilst Saint-Étienne Cathedral astounds visitors with its unusual and complex architecture. A visit of just a few hours will provide an overview that will seduce you!

    Explore the collections on display at the museums of Toulouse

    The museums of Toulouse are many and varied, often located in unusual heritage sites where history can be explored at the same time. To start off, you could visit: a former convent where fine-arts and gargoyles live side by side. A museum that recounts the story of gods, goddesses, nobles and warriors. One that celebrates posters. A foundation located within a superb mansion house. Or even the city abattoirs that are now devoted to modern and contemporary creations.
    So many fascinating worlds for young and old alike...
