Banks of the Garonne

Right bank or left bank… The Remarkable Heritage Site of Toulouse encloses a river that is its most precious treasure. Springing forth from a tumultuous Pyrenean torrent, the Garonne becomes a river as it leaves the foothills, re-joins the Ariège and then, adopting a true fluvial physiognomy, washes up on the doorstep of our city, providing a river bend that proved ideal for the establishment of a settlement.

Mansions houses

Toulouse’s Preservation Area features around 200 mansion houses or vestiges from the Middle Ages to the early XX Century. The emergence of the Capitoulat from a high-society of merchants and parliamentarians encouraged building of these homes designed by great architects, notably during the XVI and XVII Centuries.
