Toulouse Episode 06 Art and Architecture

From Roman remains to cutting edge photography

We start with a tour of some of the ‘hôtels particuliers’ which are such a feature of Toulouse architecture, finding out what kind of houses the city’s elite built themselves once money and political power had come their way. Then we visit a variety of art galleries, large and tiny, to discover the wonderful range of goodies on offer, from Roman remains to cutting edge photography, taking in plenty of medieval sculpture, ‘Golden Age’ paintings and oriental treasures en route, while not forgetting to pass by ‘one of France’s best contemporary museums’ too. Meet some local artists-made-good and a host of internationally famous ones as well.
