The Carmelite Chapel is a small single chamber, but has interesting wall and ceiling decorations. It is a little difficult to locate this chapel, which is near to the Basilica, situated in Rue du Perigord. Look for the light blue door on the north side half way along the road. When we visited the chapel, there was an interesting art... More

This ancient Chapelle has marvellously painted upper walls and ceiling. The hall itself is empty now but there is information available in English and entry is free. It's just off Rue de Taur so can be combined with visits to St Sernin and other places of interest in this area.

The convent was destroyed during the French Revolution, and only the chapel survived. The Municipal Library now occupies the place of the former Carmelite convent. The entire ceiling and walls of the chapel are covered with frescoes and this work is considered to be one of the masterpieces of 18th century Toulouse painting . Besides the paintings, the vaulted nave... More

It's worth a stop if you are around. It is a small rectangular room and has its walls covered with paintings, really nice ones.

We walked past here by chance as our guide book did not mention it. However, I was very pleased I'd popped in. The frescoes and sculpted ceiling in this otherwise empty church are, I think, eighteenth century but very attractive. It is very near the main Basilique St Sernin and offers a completely different experience. I think it is well... More

The Chapelle des Carmelites is all that remains of a convent destroyed after the French Revolution. The ceiling and walls are beautifully decorated with period art. The best view is of the ceiling. To take it in fully, if nobody is looking, lay down in the middle of the floor, look up, and take it all in. You won't be... More

We really did not like this place at all. it is dreary and dark . I saw no joy or pleasure here and found ourselves speculating about living in a Carmelite order.

i visited on my own with some french friends who made everything easy, so I enjoyed this review of the past in a city which I liked a lot and who maintains very much the spirit of the old France and of the South .... Don´t miss it!

Beutiful paintings cover the ceiling and walls of this remaining part of a 17th century Carmelite convent. Highly recommended.
