Please join us for the FHS Members’ Trip to Toulouse for Grant Ceremonies
A city with unique architecture made of pinkish terracotta bricks, which earned it the nickname la Ville Rose (“the Pink City”), Toulouse, the fourth-largest city in France, 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.
The FHS Grant Ceremonies will be held on Friday, May 10th for the Cloister of the Chartreux at the University of Toulouse: the NY Chapter gave a grant in the amount of $25,000 for this project in 2016 and the Basilique de la Daurade: the Atlanta Chapter gave a grant in the amount of $10,000 in 2017.
Additional special visits are planned in Toulouse along with a day in Albi, the episcopal city, whose old city around the Cathedral Sainte-Cécile was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 2010. FHS will be greeted by the Mayor of Toulouse, Jean-Luc Moudenc, and the Mayor of Albi, Stéphanie Guiraud-Chaumeil.
Complete details will be sent later in January. For more information, please contact Benjamin Wells.
