On Saturday there is a flea market snaking right around the basilica. In England there are now few bargains to be had at markets like this. The Antiques Roadshow has convinced everyone that every piece of tat is a valuable antique. Not so in France where flea markets and bracket appeal widely, and where there are still great bargains to... More

We visited St Etienne the day before and found it to be a beautiful representation of a gothic cathedral and thought we would be experiencing an even grander place in St-Sernin. There was a lot of reconstruction and work going on, so, it detracted from the experience. But, it was larger than expected, very nice, but, not in the top... More

I know it's another church, but it's a lovely building to walk around! Shame 90% of the info was not translated to English.

Accessed this free of charge with the pass tourisme, available from the tourist office or tisseo bus travel office ( also at airport) which allowed free unlimited travel on bus, rail, metro network and free entry to some attractions and discounted entry at others. Received an English guide book to explain the ambulatory and crypt.

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever visited: a must see! I'm no expert but I gather it is a prime example of the Romanesque style -it is simple and beautiful

Everything can be found on a one place - late Roman architecture, fantastic frescos, breathtaking interior, as well as reliquaries preserved for hundreds of years. I think it is also useful to read the legend of St. Saturnin (=Sernin) to better understand stories behind the historical places of Toulouse.
