Very picturesque, tranquil both in side and outside despite being mid August. Easily walkable from main city centre. Like most things we saw in Toulouse was very clean. No admittance fee apart from crypts at the back inside.

an amazing early roman basilica that has been transformed into a catholic church over the centuries, particularly during Pope Urban II's reign around 1089 all the way to medieval times. frescos, fabulous altars, great crypt, and architecture that is wonderful, in a great neighborhood.

Beautiful cathedral.. Was able to walk around even when services were in progress. Pleasant square in front and plenty of seating outside with musicians playing. Idealic.

This cathedral is a little different with a bronze altar piece depicting Saint Sernim and the sacrificial bull

Definitely worth a visit, the biggest church in Toulouse alongside Cathedral Saint Etienne. Very ornate and pretty, and Rue du Taur that leads up to the Basilica is great for your Occitan souvenirs!
