Our B&B host recommended to go see this place and we did enjoy the silence & tranquility of the place. Complete visit took less then one hour so easy to fit in a day-trip to Toulouse

Didn't have much time here as it was for a conference banquet. The food was great. Grounds are historic and beautiful.

Don’t miss this well kept tranquil oasis in the town centre. Access is through the jacobin church, and priced at 5 euro per adult.

As a fully-paid up member of 21st-century society, I was blown away by the interior of this building. So, I can only imagine what the people of Toulouse made of this building in the 14th and 15th centuries. It is gothic in style and the...More
