Travel Tips for Toulouse

Toulouse Tip

by almogaver

There are many places in this town than leave a fond memory
in my head and my heart. Perhaps I choose a walk along the
riverside of the Garonne, with the last summer ligth mixted
with the street lamps over the bridges. All this reflected
in the river is like a dream.

T.N.T.

T.N.T.
Trois lettres pour désigner, entre les toulousains, l'explosif Théâtre National de Toulouse, ou Théâtre de la Cité.
Explosif par sa politique de programmation, et par le choix des oeuvres qui sont présentées au public. Pas toujours en accord avec ce qu'un théâtre national devrait être en mesure de proposer, tant au niveau du choix, que de la qualité et du coût.
Explosif aussi par son lien étroit avec la municipalité et donc avec le caractère trempé des hommes politiques qui se sont succédés à la tête de la Mairie depuis la création du théâtre. Quand l'art est cautionné par les ambitions politiques ...

Three letters to designate, between the toulousains, the exploding National Theater of Toulouse, or Theater of the City.
Exploding by its politics of programming, and by the choice of the works that is presented to the public. Not always in agreement with what a national theater should be able to propose, so much to the level of the choice, that of the quality and the cost.
Exploding also by its narrow tie with the township and therefore with the character soaked of the politicians who followed the head of the Town hall since the creation of the theater. When the art is guarantied by the political ambitions...

Monument aux Combattants d'Égypte

by mikey_e

Those who are history buffs (and I am admittedly not one) will be better placed to provide a more detailed account of the French invasion of Egypt. What I do know to tell you is that Napoleon, in his quest to destroy England and Spain and to convert the known world to the French Republican/Imperial system, embarked on an invasion of the British protectorate Egypt, an adventure that cost plenty of French lives. A commemoration of that military excursion, those who died and the bygone French desire to rule over the Middle East can be found close to the Canal du Midi, in front of Les Halles. It is perhaps not as sombre as the Monument aux Combattants de la Haute Garonne, but it does evoke the sort of grandeur and pomposity so often associated with the Napoleonic era.

The Castle of Villerouge

by ChrsStrl about The Castle of Villerouge

How many truly mediaeval castles where the last Cathar bishop was taken and later burned can you come across??? Not really a straightforward restaurant, it does mediaeval feasts. Sounds touristy but was well cooked and very enjoyable.

And that is what we have for lunch. It begins with a meat pie with salad. You have a large flat loaf as the basis rather than a plate & there are no forks, just spoon, knife & fingers. The salad has a honey dressing to accompany it. Duck follows this for the others. For us there is a very generous plate of cheese. With all comes a huge dish of spinach dressed in some nut dressing. To follow is poached pear in a sort of mulled wine. As coffee was not mediaeval there is a digestif of another sort of mulled wine rich in cinnamon.

A St. Sernin Visit: The Important Ambulatory (5)

by hquittner

A visit to the Ambulatory should be the main reason for entering the church today, just as it was for pilgrim’s when it was built. It is best seen in the morning when the light is strongest. The pilgrims came for a “Tour of the Holy Relics”, some of which are still there in chapels and reliquary cabinets. We came to view the sculptural masterpieces fixed into the outer wall of the chancel. At the top of the curve sits a beardless Christ in Majesty. (He is beardless because that was the early custom and besides all the members of the Order were clean-shaven, but he has beautiful long hair). The figure is 3 1/2 ft tall and is in a mandorla surrounded by the symbols of the Evangelists. On either side are similar sized statues of a cherub and an archangel. More laterally are two prophets on one side and two angels on the other. These are 5 1/2 ft high and are deemed to be made a little later. There is a strong resemblance to the style of the bas-relief figures on the piers of the cloister at Moissac and they undoubtedly all are a series of figures produced under the guidance of the head of the group, Bernard Gilduin who also carved the Altar. The intended original use of the Sernin figures is not clear, possibly as a reredos; they seem to have been added to the wall. as inclusions. Starting at the extreme of the arch it is possible to observe the expansion of carving technic on the capitals above as one progresses westward.
