On our walking tour of Toulouse, we went inside this church. As you would expect if you've seen such churches in Europe, there were beautiful stained glass windows, an incredibly high ceiling, and wonderful artwork. Completely photogenic.

The nave is all the more the inspiring because of the lack of side chapels, limited ornamentation and pews. One can really feel the space, feel the spirit so to speak. The cloisters and open space were deserted on a chilly January afternoon. Very peaceful...More

Toulouse is full of ancient architecture and medieval heritage but this monastery shines like a diamond even between all pearls on the crown of the town. Bright and dynamic Mauritanian style of the Western Mediterranean mixed up with reflection and religios fear of middle ages...More

It's in the city center and the visit doesn't take long as it's not big. However, it's beautiful, with very nice color-glass windows. It worth to stop and visit it. Free entrance.

This church was part of the monastery and therefore is divided into two with columns to separate the monks from the public. It is only used for one service each year now and that is a mass in late November. It was wonderful to hear...More

The courtyard, nice view of the Church of Les Jacobins. This place is different for typical French. The Art and building are mixed between Spanish and Roman type.
