Rue du Taur

This street lined with crêperies, small restaurants and bookshops, greatly appreciated by students, connects Place du Capitole and Saint-Sernin. It commemorates the martyrdom of St Sernin, the Languedoc apostle. He was tied to a bull because he refused to respect Roman Emperor Decius' edict, commanding all citizens to sacrifice a bull to pagan gods.
