Church of Les Jacobins, Toulouse

4.6
#2 of 14 in Historic Sites in Toulouse
Housed in an entirely brick building built in the 13th century, Church of Les Jacobins has a massive, even austere exterior that contrasts with its extraordinarily light-filled interior. Inside the palm, 22 ribs support the choir of this Southern Gothic church. The cloister, sanctuary, chapter house, and chapel contain original relics of St. Thomas Aquinas, in all their restored glory. The cloister hosts cultural events such as festivals and concerts, and you’ll find temporary exhibitions in the former convent refectory.

  • When we do the Cathar circuit he can't forget it and during the summer in the cloister, sitting in the grass listening to music (any style) it's great.

  • Fascinating journey through the city trying to find this lovely church. Huge open space with lovely paintings on the walls.  more »
  • Toulouse is a city that hides its secrets. Many of the churches are behind its walls and must discover them. Les Jacobins contains stories of characters who have and those who have stayed as holy Tomás de Aquino, whose tomb is located there. It is a journey to the past, a story that tells itself.
