Martres-Tolosane

Martres-Tolosane

Located at a distance of about 60 kilometres in the south of Toulouse, Martres-Tolosane is a small village that is famous for its earthenware, whose local production hasn’t been interrupted since the 18th century.

Earthenware

Martres-Tolosane’s earthenware pieces are characterized by their white background decorated with floral motifs and birds. Walking outside the fortified town, through the streets strewn with houses and small gardens, you will see earthenware artisans who persist in maintaining this ancestral profession adapting to modern times.

Angonia and the Grand Presbytery

Don’t leave without visiting Angonia (Martres-Tolosane’s name in Gallo-Roman times), an interpretation centre on local heritage located next to the Tourist Office that hosts a remarkable collection of ancient ceramic pieces, and the Grand Presbytery, an exhibition centre devoted to arts and crafts and modern art whose wonderful cosy and welcoming garden is ideal to enjoy a relaxing moment.
