  • Austere Church. Curious and impressive columns in the form of palm of his ship. Beautiful cloister. Here are the relics of Saint Tomás de Aquino. There are free bathrooms and souvenir shop. Access to the Church is free. To visit the cloister, the chapter room, the refectory and the chapel of San Antolín have to pay €4 (reduced, €2; free for students). Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 to 18:00 hours.

  • You are transported through the centuries in this historic place very well rehabilitated. A case of history of toulouse at 2 not Capitol. Almost forced visit to relive a past unforgettable.

  • This major convent of the Domenican order offers a stunningly large church with beautiful stained glass ceilings and supporting pillars. A golden box underneath the central altar holds the remains of Thomas Aquinas. Entry to the church is free. There is a small fee of you want to visit the adjacent courtyard and scriptorium.
  • Beautiful former church/place of worship definitely worth seeing especially during the sunny days. This is because the building boasts huge windows with colorful stained glass which beautifully illuminate the whole interior of the place. High ceilings are also very impressive and for those looking for some spirituality there are remains of St Thomas Aquinas, a priest, philosopher and theologian. Access is free, though if you want to see cloisters, gardens etc you need to buy a ticket for, as far as I remember €4.
  • Echt heel mooi: sober, maar elegant. De vier euro waard.
  • Great and historic spot. 4eur to enter the gardens. Totallyworthit.
  • 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.
