If you’ve ever heard Toulouse referred to as ‘La Ville Rose’, you’ll understand why as soon as you arrive. The traditional use of brick is recognised as a local craft in this part of southern France, and it’s formed part of local heritage all the way from antiquity to the present day. Subtly shifting between soft pinks and fiery ochres with the changing sunlight, the façades of Toulouse’s buildings swathe the whole city in a warm, welcoming cloak.
