Église des Jacobins, Toulouse
(4.6/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • 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 ...  more »
  • Something hidden, beautiful but not said anything in it, the cloister, for € 4 you can visit, bonito, the ticket expires in 365 days a year so it can pass or ask and thus lower costs...

  • During our visit, a singer occurred at capella and we were able to fully appreciate acoustic values of this old building. It is an atmosphere of peace and this allows us to admire the stained glass windows and the exceptional vault, known as "Palm tree". Similarly, the central pillars are impressive. This church is apparently stripped but it seems actually full of warmth and life. The adjacent cloister visit is also a great peaceful adventure.

  • This church is uncoventional. It has no central nabe and two side aisles. Instead it has two naves side by side dibided by big columns which are supposed to look like palm trees. Saint Thomas Aquinas os buried here.
  • This an other must see impressive.
  • 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!!
  • A place full of charms, beautiful, downtown. The cloister is a place of relaxation, you can sometimes see exhibitions. A key location of the Pink City!
