Stadium de Toulouse – Information and access
Toulouse Rugby Village – Information and access
Welcome to Toulouse, where life is good. Dynamic and innovative, the “Pink City” is an essential stop-off point in the heart of France’s south-west.
Once the capital of the Visigoths, now a dynamic aeronautics capital, Toulouse invites you to discover its two thousand years of history! The city is also a mecca for gastronomy, with foie gras, vineyards, cheeses and a wide variety of other products from the Occitanie region, of which it is the capital, and from which it has managed to preserve its gentle way of life, as well as an intense cultural life, with theatres and numerous festivals, and a national orchestra whose fame extends beyond its borders...
But Toulouse is above all the European capital of rugby, with 5 European Championship titles (a record!) for its flagship club, Stade Toulousain, and its many French internationals trained in the surrounding clubs.
The Saint-Sernin Basilica, built of brick and stone in the 11th century, is nothing less than one of the greatest Romanesque buildings in the West! Former stopover on the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago de Compostela, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Beneath its octagonal bell tower, you'll discover a huge 21-metre-high vaulted nave and a crypt containing numerous relics.
A true symbol of Toulouse, this basilica is located not far from the Place du Capitole, where Toulousans gather to celebrate the many titles won by their sports teams.
