About the Tour

A journey through medieval Toulouse! Come and discover for yourself why all the attendees value it positively.

The Middle Ages, time of crusades, heresies, passions and miracles.
Join me on a temporary journey through the iconic and essential places in the city of Toulouse .

We will discover how the great pilgrimage routes were born and what led people to travel hundreds of kilometers on dangerous journeys into the unknown, all through the spectacular Saint Sernin basilica.

We will walk the streets where the most famous myths of the city of Toulouse happened.

We will learn about the language of the great troubadours in front of the wonderful façade of the Capitol, the spectacular city hall of the city.

We will immerse ourselves in the roots of the Dominicans, the crusades and the heresies through the magnificent convent of the Jacobins.

And this is just the beginning of this impressive 2-hour tour in which I will discover the colors of Toulouse and its secrets, the disasters that almost wiped it off the map and the strange name "La Ville Rose" that the city receives. Toulouse.

A dynamic tour of living history to understand the present of this wonderful city that will end at the Saint Etienne Cathedral.

What are you waiting for to book? cancellation is free :)

Important:
The tour seeks as much as possible a fresh and pleasant route, avoiding spending a lot of time in the sun. Even so, it is recommended to bring water and stay hydrated in the summer months.

-At 6:30 p.m. you will not be able to enter the buildings, not because I will not let you, but because almost all of them close at 6:00 p.m.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be at the entrance of the Basilica, with a bow tie and a flashy shirt
