Tourist attractions in Toulouse

 Things to see

Among many historical places :

St Etienne's Cathedral  :

This cathedral is certainly not an example of symetry in religious architecture. Featuring an eclectic mix of styles, it is perhaps best known for its huge 12th-century nave, which is misaligned from its choir. Plans to realign the two never came to fruition. Other attractions of note at the "Cathédrale St. Étienne" include the rose window in the western part of the cathedral and also the decorative belfry.

The Jacobins Church:

Dating back to the 13th century, the "Église des Jacobins" is a Jacobin monastery and a fine example of religious architecture in Toulouse. Its high vaulted ceiling is particularly impressive. The ashes of St. Thomas of Aquinas are one of the church's main attractions for tourists and are displayed to maximum effect in a cleverly illuminated tomb.

The Capitol Square:

A beautiful square in the heart of Toulouse, "Place du Capitole" is a hub of activity in the city. The impressive pink stone Capitole is the main attraction of the square. Surrounding the Place du Capitole are narrow historical streets lined with restaurants, bars, boutiques and shops.

The City of Space:

Just out of town and accessible from the Toulouse ring road, the "Cité de l'espace" is one of the city's major tourist attractions today . . In the Cité's grounds are lifesize spaceships, including an exact replica of the Mir space station.

In our gymnasium, we can do several activities.

Next to the gymnasium, there is a field for outside activities. We can play rugby, football; we can do running, volleyball, basketball, badminton... etc.

In the gymnasium, there are some rooms. In the biggest room, there are a climbing wall and a sports ground for the inside activities.

There are smaller rooms for small group activities such as dance and fitness.

In our gymnasium there are 4 changing rooms, inside and outside.

Our Cafeteria

Publié le 18 avr. 2011 à 09:53 ♦ Mis à jour le 06 mai 2011 à 20:44

Our Cafeteria is where we have our lunch every day !

It's very beautiful and new , but it's not practical because it's too small for the moment and nobody can eat at the same time between noon and one o'clock and a half .

It can welcome about two hundred pupils per shift, but, we are about five hundred who have to get in every day ! Some of us do not have lunch at school : they go back home, because they don't live far or their parents can come and fetch them.

It's currently being extended because next year, our secondary school will be welcoming more pupils.

The food is varied and balanced, but it's  not so good !
Sometimes we eat like you (English food) it's   (just joking  LoL  ;-))

The Pupils' Rooms

Publié le 18 avr. 2011 à 09:55 ♦ Mis à jour le 20 avr. 2011 à 18:55

The FSE ('Foyer Socio Educatif' in French) means the Pupils' Rooms. It is a place for pupils where they can meet for in-school activities.

There they can play baby-foot, listen to music, do their homework or play music in a special room.

There are three rooms in the Foyer, one of them is much bigger than the other two.

There we can buy chocolate bread ( 'pain au chocolat' in French ) and hot chocolate at break.

When the Pupils' Rooms are closed, a pupil who doesn't have class, and who wants to use them, must get the key from the pupils' staff.
