    Cloisters same as Musee De Augustins
    I went to this before I went to Musee De Augustins and was suitably impressed. However Musee De Augustins is free to get in, is almost identical in terms of cloisters and has the added benefit of an art gallery. So yes please do visit if in the area but probably not worth paying for the cloisters if you have been or are going to Musee De Augustins.

    Worth a Visit
    A quick note to echo other reviews saying how the convent is worth dropping by. The opera workshop exhibit was a fantastic and unexpected surprise. We also listened to two young women reenacting characters from the 100 Years War and telling that story.

    Stunning moorish architecture in Toulouse!!!
    This site is simply amazing and absolutely not to be missed. This is a perfect mix of Christian and Moorish architecture. This is the first such site we have visited in France. Also would add that Toulouse, the pink city is simply beautiful. Not to be missed if in the area.

The chapel is beautiful and completely free so I would definitely recommend visiting that. In terms of the cloister it is quite beautiful however the 5 euro price is a bit much given what you get for it is two fairly bare rooms and gardens which should be free. I would like to note that the cloister as a whole is free for students who present proof that they are studying. June 2023 they have an opera costumes exhibit which was super cool and made the entrance fee more worth it.

For the 4 Euros to enter, it was ok. Priced any higher I would pass and simply walk around the free church. I did enjoy reading about the history though.

This is a refreshing break from wandering around a busy city. As soon as you enter through the main entrance, everything is suddenly very quiet & relaxed. Inside the main church itself you can ponder at the stained glass windows & gothic decor. There is a ticket office through the back where you can purchase a ticket to access the garden & the rest of the area. The garden is simply a large square in the middle. A great place to sit for a while or simply catch your breath. The museum exhibits are also quite interesting, mostly about early life & different empires. Overall, i'm not sure the covent is a must see but it's certainly worth a look

The signage isn't great, but you enter the cloister via the chapel Sadly, the visitation includes just the cloisters and some signage about the old Friars. There is little else to see. It appears that all the rooms, including the chapel, have been gutted. In fairness, the architecture is quite impressive with the valuted ceilings, but I don't think that is worth the 4 euro entry fee by itself. I'd give this one a miss.

A hidden gem that's worth a visit if you're in the area. Entrance is free. It is a church and Dominican monastery built in 1229 and is now the mother church of the Dominican order. One of the slender columns holding up the roof of the church is known as the “Palm Tree”, supporting 22 ribs of the vaulted roof, an impressive architectural feat at the time. St. Thomas Aquinas is buried beneath the church altar.
