This is one of many Toulouse streets named after the medieval activity that took place there. About thirty bankers and moneychangers once worked in this road, which was part of the main medieval high street. Today it's a busy clothes-shopping area, but it still has the most beautiful towers in town. They are now privately owned, but if you're ever lucky enough to be shown inside, you'll get a spectacular view of the city. The height and beauty of a tower once indicated the social rank of its owner. Among others, look out for the Arnault de Bruxelles tower (no.19), the Astorg tower (no.16) and the Pierre Delpech tower (no.20).
