Toulouse, 25 to 27 October 2024

This major street show, a full-scale urban opera created by François Delaroziere and La Compagnie La Machine, is a sequel to the first part of “The Guardian of the Temple”, held in autumn 2018. This new opus, organised by Toulouse Métropole and designed by Compagnie La Machine, will be held in Toulouse city centre from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 October 2024.

In Toulouse, there is always opportunity to enjoy a generous meal in a top restaurant, a local bistro or a wine bar.

Toulouse cultivates the “art de vivre” and the art of hospitality. A gourmet city par excellence, it offers a wide range of options for aperitifs, meals and snacks. From regional specialities (cassoulet, Toulouse sausage, wines, cheeses…) to exotic flavours, the city’s many restaurants are serving up their best dishes.
