Overview

One should not miss the wonderment of discovering the very peculiar architecture of the narrow and tall buildings that circle place Saint-Georges… why not do so while taking a ride on the amazing merry-go-round that’s been there a very long time. Called place Montaygon in the 12th and 13th Centuries, what is today known as place Saint Georges was the largest in Toulouse. Although it is still today named after the chapel built in the 14th Century, place Saint-Georges is actually known as the location of public gatherings of all sorts: markets and political meetings, but also the place of torture and execution of villains. Two of the best restaurants in town are on place Saint-Georges: chez Emile and the Van Gogh.
