if you go to toulouse, you must visit this chapel. other chapels and churchs were not that colourful. the ceiling was covered with paintings like sistine chapel. and the walls were full of big paintings too. it is very near to st.etienne basilica. i recommend you to see it.

We had missed this little chapel on our first visit to Toulouse, despite its location one block form our hotel! This time we were smarter, and were very happy to have seen the beautiful painted scenes and ceiling. When we visited, we were the only ones there beside the caretaker. It is well worth seeing and is free.

While walking around Toulouse we stopped by the Chapelle des Carmelites. While visiting, there was an exhibit on Jews in Europe and the persecution they've endured. ( The chapel has been related to the Ministry of Culture since 1975 and is now managed by the national monuments center. ) It contains a remarkable collection of murals by Jean-Pierre Rivalz and...

In a side street you can find a marvel. This is the Chapelle des Carmelites. Its ceiling and the upper walls are beutifully painted with 18. century frescos.

Not a major stop but worth a visit (no charge) for the exquisitely painted ceiling. Close to the Place Capitole. Supposedly inspired by the Sistine Chapel. Not sure but still beautiful.

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.
