Visit the historic city center on foot

Toulouse is nicknamed the "pink city" for its old colored stones. If Toulouse is classified "City of art and history", it is thanks to its architectural heritage of great beauty. Its history is very rich and it was marked by the episcopate of Bishop Saturnin. Many sites still bear witness to this prosperous period. We offer you an overview of the must-see monuments to visit in Toulouse.
