This place is stunning inside. It's definitely worth a visit and also worth going to see the crypts too. The ceilings are beautifully painted too

Fairly average basilique, especially having just come from Narbonne and Carcassonne, where there are much more impressive buildings. More modern if you prefer that kind of thing though and it is free, which is a bonus. They have about the 'great organ', but i also didn't think that was too impressive to be honest. All in all, slightly underwhelming.

Ancient Basillique with interesting crypt. The main alter has a beautiful large baldacchino. If your lucky, the sounds of the organ might be heard.

Really beautiful exterior but the interior is just as breathtaking. Take a stroll around the inside to see the beautiful windows and ceiling.

Beautiful building. Stunning tower. If you can visit at the moment there is a haunting photographic display for Easter

Very unique chapel with intricate work on the facade. It also has a lovely square with a fountain. Worth visiting on a walking tour of the city.

This is an outstanding example of Romanesque architecture and definitely worth visiting in Toulouse.

Was visiting our daughter (an international student) and doing a tour of Toulouse. Well worth a visit. Also the Croissant/bread hop nearby is excellent

There is a gorgeous painted ceiling at the far end of the nave but you can't get any closer unless you go through a gate. Others have mentioned paying to see the crypt and thus you get a closer look at it, but it seems no one was around for me to get tickets (on a Saturday afternoon last week).
