We will enter the Capitol to see the paintings in the arcade of the square. The free guided tour of Toulouse will continue in the cathedral of Saint Etienne, seven hundred years old and famous for the mixture of Romanesque and Gothic styles in its architecture. Our eyes will go immediately to the rosette of the facade, columns and arches of its entrance. We will approach the river Garonne, the most important in southeastern France that is also connected by the New Bridge of Toulouse. We will take the opportunity to take a quiet walk along the shore while contemplating the two banks of the river. We will continue through the convent of the Jacobins, where we will visit the church to admire its laborious ceiling. What surprises will await us inside this religious building? We will discover them! We will conclude our visit in the basilica of Saint Sernin, the second oldest in France. Itinerary of the free walking tour of Toulouse Immerse yourself in the history, culture and architecture of the French city of Toulouse, exploring its elegant streets and squares with a Spanish-speaking guide. You will begin your free walking tour at the Place du Capitole, a square in the heart of the city that bears the name of the neoclassical building of the Pink Brick Capitol: home of the City Hall and the Toulouse Opera House. Learn all about its history, dating back to the twelfth century, while admiring its impressive facade. Next, you will go to the Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Toulouse, the cathedral of Toulouse. Marvel at its amazing combination of architectural styles, including Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque, the result of its many centuries of history and the fact that they were originally two separate churches! Not far from the Cathedral, you will arrive at the Museum of Fine Arts in Toulouse, the Musée des Augustins. Located in an old Augustine Monastery, the 14th-century Gothic building is both a work of art and the more than 4000 works exhibited inside. Continue your free walking tour of the magnificent Hôtel d'Assézat, a 16th-century Renaissance palace that now houses an art gallery, before walking to the banks of the Garonne to enjoy the views of the famous Pont Neuf or New Bridge, which, despite its name, is almost 500 years old. Walking along the river, you will soon arrive at the huge Church of the Jacobins, an emblematic building whose incredible vaulted roof of the 13th century has been named "The Palm" for its unique design. Finally, you will visit the largest Romanesque church in the world, the Basilica of San Sernin, where your guide will reveal the myths and legends surrounding the building, before your tour comes to an end.
