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.

Beautiful former church/place of worship definitely worth seeing especially during the sunny days. This is because the building boasts huge windows with colorful stained glass which beautifully illuminate the whole interior of the place. High ceilings are also very impressive and for those looking for some spirituality there are remains of St Thomas Aquinas, a priest, philosopher and theologian. Access is free, though if you want to see cloisters, gardens etc you need to buy a ticket for, as far as I remember €4.
From architectural standpoint this is probably one of the most valuable buildings in the city. Clay bricks give a chromatic identity, as many other illustrious ancient place in Toulouse. Strong Hispanic influence. Inside cloister very quiet relaxing atmosphere.
Stunning place, free to go in the church, €4 to go in the Cloisters. worth it though, as the church is unique and beautiful and the cloisters are incredible with beautiful views and amazing history, definitely the must see in Toulouse
Great place to host Saint Thomas Aquinas relics, a great chance to honour him and his colossal works to bring God's wonders accessible to people : Summa Theologica & Compendium. Must read!
Many come to see the ceiling, but miss the center piece. Don't forget to check out the relics of Saint Thomas Aquinas!
