FROM THE CAMPSITE
TOULOUSE, BETWEEN SCIENCE AND CULTURE,
STROLL IN THE PINK CITY FROM OUR CAMPSITE NEAR TOULOUSE
The "pink city" is renowned for its cultural heritage, with its monuments and various events, and for its attraction for science. It will be the European Capital of Science in 2018.
LA VILLE ROSE
As you walk through the city, you will see why it is nicknamed " the pink city " (the preferred building material is terracotta brick). The capitole (home of the Toulouse city hall) is built from these terracotta bricks. It is also the central square of the city. At the back, you will not miss the archives tower. It is recognizable by its slate roof.
In the vicinity of the Capitol, you can visit:
- The convent of the Jacobins : it was built in 1229.
- The basilica Saint Sernin : roman art church.
- The St. Stephen's Cathedral : it was built in the 5th century and combines two gothic styles.
And many other places...
