  • Old monastery, preserved in incredible shape, houses an impressive Museum of medieval art. This Museum of the Augustinian is must-see. The cloister, as in its origin, is a traditional orchard. Very, very interesting!

  • We really liked the museum and the church. The convent is beautiful and the art collection is great, primarily French gothic and Renaissance, although you can find a lot of neoclassicism in the bigger rooms. Highly recommended.
  • beautiful museum. very peaceful. only €5
  • Great collection. A nice church, good exhibition of French painters. Worth the time.
  • Toulouse does not have many museums. So this is probably one of the best: it is not huge, but the old paintings, the cloister and the garden are so nice!
  • The historical building in itself is worth visiting. Moreover, permanent exhibitions are diverse and interesting. Temporary exhibitions are often well-introduced.
