This place is stunning inside. The stained glass windows are beautiful and they took my breath away when I first walked inside. We paid to go through to the Cloisters which was OK but there was an overwhelming smell of tom cat urine there, there's more to see in the church itself than the Cloisters

Its free for everyone to enter the central nave with its lovely medieval wall paintings and relics of St Thomas Aquinas. It's also free for journalists like myself and certain others to enter the cloister, Saint Anthoninus chapel, etc. For everyone else it's a few euros. Lovely wall art.

You can visit the church for free, but for a small fee (4 euros from adults) you can see the whole complex. I was really amazed by the size of the church. It doesn't seem very special from outside, but once you enter, it just takes your breath away. Although I have visited many churches, all in gold and beautiful... More

The beautiful stained glass in the main sanctuary and the quality of the light reflected on the walls makes this site worth seeing. Also buy a ticket and walk around the cloister, which is so peaceful! Also visit the small chapel dedicated to Saint Anthony for the Romanesque paintings on the walls and ceilings.

We visited this church 15 years ago and were really impressed by the improvement made since. Our tour guide pointed out many of its special features and we strolled thru its peaceful garden. Must see.

It took me a few minutes to realize that those are not actually all bricks inside, but trompe d'oreille. The whole thing is painted inside, which I found amusing. Not sure if it was worth paying to see the cloisters - I saw a lot of cloisters for free in France. But it is good to support the maintenance of... More

A 13th century building of European historical importance with Romanesque brick architecture, a massive high nave with huge palm tree columns and wonderful, long stained glass windows. It marks the start of the Dominican monastic order which fought against the Cathar heresy. After the French revolution it was used as a barracks and stables, then a site of crafts and... More

Discovered this while having a walk in the center - impressive bell tower & large red-brick construction. We were just passing by in a hurry, so just had a tour and took some pictures - didn't have the time to enter inside - but I saw some pics later on and next time I plan to allocate enough time to...

Beautiful church less than 5 minutes walk from Place du Capitole. Free entrance to the main building as most of the churches in Toulouse but by far the best in my opinion. A lot of history and things to see. There is a garden & chapel (4€) to see as well. English, French and Spanish translation was a plus. Recommended!!!
