Nowadays Toulouse is often called the 'pink city' because of the warm colour of the bricks used for its buildings. Toulouse's history dates from pre-Roman times; the city became the capital of Narbonne under the Romans, and later became the capital of the Visigoth kingdom in the 5th century. However Toulouse's period of greatest importance took place between the 9th and 13th centuries when it maintained one of the most culturally and artistically refined courts in Europe. Several fine buildings of religious and temporal power have been left by the succeeding passages of civilization.
The web site contains historical information on the city and ample descriptions of the most important buildings and monuments. The site is not particularly large but it is a good example of how a medium sized city can supply the network with interesting information on its artistic and architectural patrimony.
