  • It is not expected, it is even not the street. Then when we enter we understand. Location superb, conducive to meditation, a journey out of time, wonderful heritage.

  • Beautiful cloister with magnificent capitals... Chairs well-positioned allow you a meditative pause because the audience is rather quiet and respectful. Take your time to see everything, ask, enjoy...

  • From architectural standpoint this is probably one of the most valuable buildings in the city. Clay bricks give a chromatic identity, as many other illustrious ancient place in Toulouse. Strong Hispanic influence. Inside cloister very quiet relaxing atmosphere.
  • I believe it is one of the most beautiful sites to visit in Toulouse. Sits right behind the lively streets of Rue Gambetta, it is a tranquil place to hide from city charms and its garden (with extra admission) is a must see! Piano Jacobins running through all month in Sep gives a great opportunity to enjoy the open air piano concert. It is a true retreat if you are a music lover!
  • Stunning place, free to go in the church, €4 to go in the Cloisters. worth it though, as the church is unique and beautiful and the cloisters are incredible with beautiful views and amazing history, definitely the must see in Toulouse
  • Great place to host Saint Thomas Aquinas relics, a great chance to honour him and his colossal works to bring God's wonders accessible to people : Summa Theologica & Compendium. Must read!
  • Many come to see the ceiling, but miss the center piece. Don't forget to check out the relics of Saint Thomas Aquinas!
