After the GR10, I spent two days in Toulouse, a city I enjoyed. More laid-back than Paris, but with some lovely buildings and old streets. Here are some photos. They are a little heavy on church interiors and certainly not a photo essay on the city, but I hope you enjoy them. They are done as a gallery. Click the first one to open the gallery.
Brick is the common building material. Hence the nickname la Ville Rose.
Many North Africans in the city. This guy busking contrasts with the old fountain
