genuine treasures

It is worth paying a couple of euros to visit the treasures, some of which are genuine articles. The building escaped the ravages of the Revolution

As I have said in my reviews here, if you have seen one of these, you have seen them all. There is very little to differentiate one from the other except perhaps in scale. And in that respect this is huge. But it is more impressive from the outside than the inside. It is standing for close to 900 years... More

Whilst the cathedral is frankly a mish mash, Toulouse more than makes up for it with some fantastic churches, and this is the best. If you visit Toulouse, do not miss it.

It is a must see while in town. It is a magnificent and massive Romanesque structure. To stand inside something that is over 1000 years old is absolutely amazing to me. There is no cost to visit.

Awe inspiring and majestic architecture! I visit here every time I come to Toulouse. If you do not have much time to sight see put this at the top of your list.

A gorgeous cathedral, we didn't see it at its best as it was undergoing renovations and it was pouring with rain outside, so many wet people inside, it became quite crowded. Lots of things to see.
