Once upon a time this building was dedicated to Apollo, and then Emeperor Honorius decided that it was alright if pagan houses of worship converted to Christianity. Its name was means “covered in gold” in reference to the gold leaf mosaics that once covered it. That one was established in 410, and it lasted until the 18th century when it was destroyed to make way for Toulouse’s riverside quays. The building you see to day was built in the 19th century.

It's really a beautiful place, specially if you check out its view. It has an incredible location right on the river bank, overlooking the Toulouse landscape and most of its landmarks. Check it out!
Very nice place
Beautiful building, but inside isn't that beatyful.
A lovely attraction and good to see that this church is in the process of being restored. The vantage point in front of the church is perfect for watching the sunset on the other side of the river
Very good, very beautiful place worth goingVery good,
