“Stunning”

Church of Les Jacobins
Ranked #2 of 181 things to do in Toulouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 December 2017 via mobile

Beautiful interior , the sun was shining through the stained glass windows causing a dramatic effect on the stonework , amazing. Vast space , not a great deal to see but the information boards helped you to imagine what it was like and all the purposes it has had over its many years of history. For an additional €4 you can visit the chapels and cloisters , very soothing and quiet. There is currently an art exhibition on , a little macabre , you go into a vast space with lots of life sized photos of people in coffins and weird sounds it’s dark and you can only use a head torch , a little spooky.

I didn't know that the tomb of Saint Thomas Aquinas was in this impressive church, so I was happy to find it out once there. Also, the cloister is really nice (you must pay 4 euros to go there, while the visit to the church is free), and the building is amazing from an architectural point of view. Certainly worth a visit!

Close to one of the busiest place in Toulouse you can visit this wonderful church and cloister. dating back to the XIVth century.
Inside the church seven columns hold up vaults; one of these columns is more famous than the others as the vault has 22 ribs and is laid out like a palm tree.
In September each year there is a piano festival in the cloister with amazing acoustics.
I was born in Toulouse and I have always lived there and it is my favorite place in the pink city.

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 that shows you in real the life of Jacobins, full of thoughts, overcomings and humility but bright and happy to serve and commit on the other hand.
Truly inspiring and full of catharsis

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.
