Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web
Housed in an entirely brick building built in the 13th century, Église des 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.

  • I live in Toulouse and without hesitation, among the many religious vestiges of the city, this one is the more compelling. The atmosphere that emanates from the court is really great.

  • Definitely worth a visit, famous as place where Thomas Aquinus remains were laid, and then later removed mysteriously! 
  • We went there with friends one Sunday. The Museum was free, thankfully. Not original being Catholic I found the place a little too religious for my taste. However, despite the somewhat too religious side the place has a really nice outdoor courses with a small vegetable garden and beach chairs to sit and daydream.

  • Don't miss this amazing church! A Gothic construction in brick of this size is very unusual. The result is breathtaking.
  • I love churches in the gothic era!!
  • very nice and large church, with the remains of st thomas Aquinas. The pay part with the lovely cloister and refectory is worth a visit.

  • Be sure to have a look around the place when it comes to Toulouse. No expert but also architecturally unique and religiously meaningful. (For the 13th century theologian and philosopher St. Thomas akwinaseuyi remains are enshrined) entrance fee 4 euro, which was worth every penny at all.
