On your way from the Capitole to the Basilica of St. Sernin, make sure you stop by this church. Its façade is relatively discreet yet the church is said to be built where the martyr Saint Saturnin (Sernin) who came to christianise Gaul, was released from the bull which dragged him to his death. There is a painting inside the... More

This is a very neat church, slightly off the beaten path of churches to visit in Toulouse. It is largely unrestored inside, with water damage on some of the walls and on some of the wall paintings. Some of the wall paintings looked very medieval. Lovely ceiling details, a superb marble font, some very nice later stained glass, a nice... More

The facade is noticeable, and the church is easily accessible. I suspect many people pass it by as they walk from the Place du Capitole to the basilica, but it's worth going into this Gothic building for a few minutes and admire its Gothic architecture.

We were walking from Place du Capitole on the way to Basilique Saint-Sernin and saw this lovely church on the way. Make sure you stop in and have a look. Good altar and decorations, but looks like many tourists pass this on by to see the main attractions. Don't pass the door without going and and appreciating the decor and... More

This is one of those Churches that inspire faith. Something special happens when architecture and art are combined to create a unique atmosphere of awe and devotion. Participants are drawn into a unique personal experience here that is hard to put into words.

from outside it doesn't look very interesting, but inside was really cool. I have never seen such a dark (almost black) church from inside.

In the center of town there is this old and proud church, still being used. In fact the organ is used to produce concerts.

Well worth a look around whilst in Toulouse. Light a candle for a departed relative or friend. Very close to main square and easy to find.

huge, and looking like a fortress from the outside, but with little worth to spend time inside. the building itself and especially its front is the best it hast to offer. stroll by along your tour through the city center, but no need to plan more time for it.
