Toulouse is the centre of the European aeronautic & spatial industries, with the headquarters of Airbus and the largest european space centre: Toulouse Space Centre (CST), belonging to the French National Centre for Space Studies (CNES).
Toulouse is also the first European pole for biotechnologies and life science and the 2nd research hub in France, with more than 400 laboratories and 110,000 researchers. The University of Toulouse, founded in 1229, is the fourth largest in France, and one of the oldest in Europe.
Toulouse boasts a unique architecture made of pink terracotta bricks, which earned the nickname la Ville Rose (« the Pink City »). The city seduces by its small sinuous streets and diverse medieval to modern monuments. It is a cosmopolitan and enthusiastic town, mixing historical heritage and modern lifestyle.
Toulouse counts two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Canal du Midi (designated in 1996 and shared with other cities), and the Basilica of St. Sernin, the largest remaining Romanesque building in Europe, designated in 1998 because of its significance to the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route.
