Toulouse

La vie en rose.
"Pink at dawn, red at midday, mauve at twilight" — so goes an old saying describing Toulouse, an architectural marvel of rose — pink brick on the banks of the Garonne River. Just five hours from Paris by TGV high-speed train, France's vibrant Ville Rose is a sunny Southern belle of a city, famous for its gaiety, gastronomy and cosmopolitan charm.

Beautiful Toulouse, but I find it impossible to think about Toulouse without thinking about the Cathars and the brutal repression of their heresy.

Yes, it is a beautiful city, and always was. It lays a key role in my novel about the Cathars.
