To my knowledge, it is the only city in France with a nickname that mentions a color (we already know that "the city of light" is Paris), but Toulouse, "the pink city" by the terracotta bricks of many of its buildings, it deserves to be our first article of 2019 for much more than its color.

Toulouse (for not translating it and that is confused with the Tolosa of Spain), is a city of small streets and large monuments, of relaxed cafés and full terraces. It is a city to enjoy walking and to contemplate the fri.

Accessible by car from Spain, it is only 3 hours from Girona or almost 3.5 hours from San Sebastián, and by plane, even from Seville there are direct flights, here you have - with map included - our suggestions on what to see and what to do in Toulouse on a 48-hour getaway to the pink city.

They are found in a fountain (in the Place Saint-Étienne) originally from the 16th century, which in a subsequent reform incorporated the images of the four rounded suckers, but the fact that the running water of a public fountain flowed from its most private parts The society of the time did not sit well and had to be modified so that the water came out of the mouth of a duck on its right arm.
