“Beautifully painted monastic church with stunning stained glass windows”

Church of Les Jacobins
Ranked #2 of 181 things to do in Toulouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 December 2017

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 the room filled with the sound of singing and see the patterns the sunlight made through the stained glass on the walls. A really special visit.

We walked around Toulouse and the walked down to the canal, this church was on the way . It was interesting to have a look inside as well as the outside . Entry was free and it was not over crowded on a Sunday afternoon in November

A beautiful building in a beautiful city. Definitely worth taking a detour to see it. I wish I could have stayed longer.

This deconsecrated Roman Catholic church was one of my favourite places on our recent tour. It features fabulous Gothic architecture, and, notably, a single row of pillars resulting in a stunning ceiling. The tomb of Saint Thomas Aquinas is here.

We visited the cathedral and cloisters while in Toulouse. The light shining through the windows onto the brick columns was otherworldly. The cloisters were calm and peaceful. The different areas around the complex were labeled in French, English and Spanish. They explained the history of the cloistered and the priests there. We were surprised to learn that Thomas Aquinas is buried there.
