Great architecture, worth a visit and a few photo's. The Church is close to a market, which is very large over a few streets,

We took our two kids, ages 8 and 10 to visit La Gallerie. On display was "The Garden of Whispers" which was amazing to experience. The kids were only mildly interested, but it was a unique and interesting display. The Gallerie was filled with sand and had a path that showed you through the exhibit. There were voices coming out... More

My first impression as I walked into the church was wonderment. I was in awe of the huge high ceilings and the beautiful stained glass. All I could do is stare upwards. It was a sunny day and the sunshine illuminating the stained glass was breathtakingly beautiful. The gardens are peaceful and serene lending to a calming, tranquil walk in... More

We did not pay the fee to see all parts of this church. Even so, we found the open areas of the church, especially the ceiling, very impressive.

This church is immensely high and is world famous not only for its awe-inspiring palm vaulting but also as the final resting place of St Thomas Aquinas.

Dates back to 1230 and influenced the development of the southern Gothic style. Famously contains the relics of Thomas Aquinas. In the two centuries following the dissolution of the Dominican Order at the time of the French Revolution it served various different purposes before undergoing major restoration in the 20th century completed in 1974. Well worth the trip to Toulouse... More

Good height gives a great sense of openness. The "palmier" in the choir is astonishing, and the new stained glass in the windows on the south side produce a beautiful light. Normally you need to pay to get into the cloister, but on Tuesdays there is no admission charge. Check out the little films about restoring the place: fascinating! There... More

Came here just for a look but both the Church and Convent were free that day so decided to go inside. Beautiful facade in the church and outside area of the Covent with information points in French and English so you know what's going on. Exhibition happening in the convent at the moment that is definitely worth seeing to believe!

Definitely worth a visit, famous as place where Thomas Aquinus remains were laid, and then later removed mysteriously!
