About

Due to the health crisis, the amphitheater of Purpan is closed until further notice. Feel like fighting a bear or biting a head? Nothing could be simpler: we go to the Roman amphitheater of Purpan or to the thermal baths of Ancely and go back in time!

The only ancient monument of Toulouse still visible in its entirety, the Roman amphitheater of Purpan was built around the middle of the 1st century AD. It was a perfect setting for gladiatorial games until the end of the 4th century.

Of course, only a few vestiges remain, but one can imagine the arena quite well.

As for the thermal baths and the swimming pool of Ancely, it is under a residential building of the city that one reaches there. The swimming pool, of 13 m x 19 m, was reserved for swimming, and the whole constitutes certainly the most unexpected Roman vestige of the city.
