It has the 1st place for many years as most French welcoming city, it is as well the European capital of aeronautics and space industry.

Toulouse the "ville rose" (pink city), sang by Nougaro, got its nickname from the red brick, everywhere, specificity of its architecture.

Violet culture development in Toulouse during the XIX century made this flower the symbol of the city and the name of “Cité des Violettes”.

The Canal du Midi is classified into the Unesco Patrimony list from 1996, and the Saint Sernin Basilic from 1998 linked to the Saint-Jacques de Compostelle trip.
