  • This water tower was used to feed the fountains of the city formerly. Today, it host a photo exhibition. You can enter inside (at the entrance of the expo), in order to discover the mechanism and the bowels of the water tower. A beautiful very well preserved monument.

  • Inside the Castle photo gallery: exhibitions in an original setting, which we appreciated. This historic site: former water Castle, we learn about the history of Toulouse while enjoying the photo exhibitions: temporary in the water tower and permanent in the annex with a small shop. It was a good activity as much by bad weather by a sunny day because not too long :)

  • The Gallery of the water tower is a must for lovers of photo and image in Toulouse! Exhibitions regularly, running a small price that makes it affordable to all, and an unusual place that is this old water in the bowels of which tower you can dive. I'll always come back with a huge pleasure.
