BARCELONA>>TOULOUSE___ BY TRAIN

by yassint

In July 29, we gotta be in Toulouse, we plan to go to Toulouse from Barcelona. We will buy the plane ticket to Barcelona nowadays. But i dont know if we have to buy the train ticket from Barcelona to Toulouse now, or we could buy it when we go to Barcelona train station.. I would be very happy if u could answer that. When shall we buy the train ticket.. Thanks..

(btw this is my first post..a new member i am :) )

Buy the ticket in Barcelona - it could be much cheaper than abroad. Most European railways have special deals like 19 to 39 EUR between major cities in neighbor countries. These cheap tickets cannot be purchased abroad unless you buy yourself an e-ticket. Try www.renfe.es or www.sncf.fr for e-ticket, otherwise try your luck at the station. The tickets will be much more expensive in a third country (like Turkey, for instance) - but still within legal borders and a complete ripp-off if you purchase them overseas (USA, Canada, Japan). I found recently, an EUR 35 "regular" ticket was offered in USA for $85 by a major US rail ticket agency. The same ticket can be purchased for EUR 15 locally.

Ann,

- Eurail is always the worst deal. I strongly advise against it in almost any case. Buying point-to-point ticket from railway web sites is usually the best deal. But it really depends on countries you go. Buying train tickets in Europe and good part of Asia is kind of art, rail passes in many cases are the worst deal.

- Almost all train can be found on http://www.db.de/site/bahn/en/start.html (mostly in German, but English is also there). It's an amazing web site. You can type the cities you looking for in the upper left corner and let the German "magic" begin.

I got p..ed off that this web site does not display trains from Beijing to Ha Noi (but from Beijing, China to Barcelona Sants, Spain on July 19 it gave me some trains). I guess, you can try to enter Barcelona to Touluse, if Beijing works, Toulouse will do, too.

Regarding the bi-weekly train from Beijing to Ha Noi, this is an unexcusable mistake, we have to complain to DB - it should be in their database. ;-P

Travel Tips for Toulouse

The Church of La Dalbade

by Klod5

The tradition wants that the church of the Dalbade is built on an oratory founded in VII th century by St.-Germier, bishop toulousain.
Its interior walls, primitively whitewashed to the lime in order to recall the sanctuary marial of it, gave him the name: Sancta Maria of Ecclesia Alba (St.-Marie of the white church), become " of albata " and frenchified thereafter in Dalbade.
But very quickly the church becomes too small and the competition with other parishes provokes many works :
- réaménagement of the new pentagonal bedhead (1490).
- repairing of the nave (1530).
- construction of a new portal by Michel Colin and its ornamentation by Merigon Talhan (1537).
- realization of a bell-tower confided to Etienne Guyot according to a drawing of Nicolas Bachelier.

May 6, 1548, the church is dedicated by Laurent Allemend, bishop of Grenoble and abbot of St.-Sernin.
At the end the XVI th century, the arrow is finally finished and, with its 83 meters, the bell-tower is higher of 16 meters that the one of St.-Sernin. The arrow will be destroyed at the revolution, because it jeopardized the principle of equality.

At the end the XVI th century, the arrow is finally finished, and with its eighty-three meters, the bell-tower prevails of sixteen meters over the one of St.-Sernin.

The arrow having been destroyed at the revolution (1792), because it jeopardized the principle of equality, one puts back in yard the building.

It is architect's E. Bach that one confides the care to take the first place owing St.-Sernin.

Musée Georges Labit

by Klod5

C'est le musée des arts et traditions d'Orient. Avec de magnifiques objets venus de Chine, du Japon, d'Asie centrale, d'Egypte et de tout le Moyen Orient. Dans une maison, qui était celle de l'explorateur, Georges Labit, dont l'architecture est très exotique. Le musée est entouré d'un parc ouvert au public.

It is the museum of the arts and traditions of Orient. With magnificent objects come from China, Japan, central Asia, Egypt and the whole Middle Orient. In a house, that was the one of the explorer, Georges Labit, whose architecture is very exotic. The museum is surrounded with a park opened to the public.

Les Halles

by mikey_e

Every French city and town has it Halles - literally the halls, but essentially the municipal market where you can find the usual sort of scenes people generally associate with shopping for food in France. Or at least used to be - from what I can tell, this one in Toulouse has been converted to a musical performance centre.

At the divergence of Place Dupuy and Rue Metz.

Toulouse ville espagnole

by Klod5 about Les cousins latinos

Restos et autres bars à tapas qui valent également le détour
Restaurants and other tapas bars that are worth the detour also :

La Bonita : 112 Grand rue Saint-Michel. Pour les amateurs de viande. Un conseil si vous y allez le soir, mangez léger le midi. For the amateurs of meat. An advice if you go there in the evening, eat light the noon.

Le Puerto Habana : 12 port Saint-Etienne. Pour finir la soirée. Salsa garantie jusqu'au bout de la nuit. To finish the evening. Guaranteed Salsa until the tip of the night.

Le Barrio latino : 144 avenue de Muret. Même envie de faire la fête, même punition qu'au Puerto Habana. Same desire to make the feast, same punishment that in the Puerto Habana.

Cathédrale Saint Etienne - St-Stephen's Cathedral

by breughel

The leaflet, in English, at the entrance explains:
"The Cathedral of St-Stephen surprises and puzzles the visitor whether one looks at it from inside or from outside, since it is the result of a juxtaposition of buildings that have been either amputed or left unfinished, built between the 11th and the 17th century."
The traveller, who on his trip in old Europe, will have seen hundreds of churches with a classical plan, will enjoy leaning against the enormous central pillar (of Jean of Orleans) and discovering to his left the Bishop Isarn's nave, known as Raimondine nave, the most ancient part and on his right the choir of the Canons with the stalls, the altar, the ambulatory with twelve chapels .
The tapestries show the life of St-Stephen. Unfinished and truncated, because of financial difficulties, death of the master of the works, fire, revolution, St-Etienne is a perfect example of setbacks that made this cathedral, which should have been a rival of Reims according to the bishop Bertrand de l'Isle, more surprising than beautiful.

===========

Le dépliant fort intéressant mis à disposition à l'entrée de l'église indique fort justement:
"Autant à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur, cette cathédrale surprend et déconcerte: elle est le résultat d'une juxtaposition d'édifices amputés et inachevés, du XIe au XVIIe siècles et même jusqu'au XXe siècle (portail nord).
A travers les caprices d'un plan et de structures aux formes asymétriques; la cathédrale de Toulouse réalise un ensemble plein d'intérêt par l'abondance et la variété des œuvres qu'elle renferme."
Le voyageur, qui dans son périple en cette vieille Europe, aura vu des centaines d'églises au plan classique, sera ravi en s'adossant à l'énorme pilier central (de Jean d'Orléans) de découvrir à sa gauche la nef Raimondine et à sa droite le chœur des Chanoines.
