Toulouse was where the Order of the Preachers was founded by St. Dominic. Coming to be known as Dominicans, they built the whole convent of Jacobins for the purpose of combating the heresy of the Cathares. Finished in 1385, the Toulouse was where the Order of the Preachers was founded by St. Dominic. Coming to be known as Dominicans, they built the whole convent of Jacobins for the purpose of combating the heresy of the Cathares. Finished in 1385, the church is an intriguing mix of a grand exterior and an interior that feels like it’s about to take flight any second. Between 1275 and 1315, the height of the choir was increased, and windows were created above the chapels. The seven-storey bell tower was also added at this time. Starting in 1325, higher vaulted roof was constructed for the nave in order to bring it into line with the choir. These changes were made to make the church look beautiful from inside and outside.

Very impressive structure with a nice garden on the inside. Nice place to come out for pictures. Although vast open space on the inside of the church there is not much to see.
The church itself is an architectural wonder. There is a mirror set up where you can observe the ceiling which is marvelous. The golden shrine of St. Thomas Aquinas is the center of the building. It is sparsely furnished but because of this you can observe more of the actual building construction and the original paint remnants. A church worth seeing if you are in Toulouse.
Beautiful architecture though otherwise not much to see. Virtual tour board helps you to get to learn the history of the monument.
Toulouse has many cathedrals, this one is a MUST. The most beautiful and inspiring of them all, with a remarkably beautiful garden.
Very tranquil place.
