Montauban : Michelin's recommendations
Why is it that certain towns seem to produce artists in almost every generation? No one knows the answer. However, this ancient fortified town has this distinction since it was the home of Ingres, the portrait painter, Antoine Bourdelle, the sculptor, François Desnoyers, Robert Lapoujade, and Philippe Labro, the author and journalist. Montauban is a major crossroads and an active market town (market gardening and fruit production). It is also one of the «pink» towns of the Toulouse area.
