This cathedral is an odd place, which makes it worth visiting. It has a rather plain southern gothic nave.

At present, September 2015 the Cathedral is closed to the public for renovation. You can just see it from outside and is still amazing. Nice patio in front full of peace, people go there sit, talk, eat or even sleep in the grass. After the renovation it should be great.

this church is an incredible anomaly. A beautiful, austere basilica church in the front, and the a gothic church was attached at the altar, but off center, so that when you walk into the basilica, you see a massive column rather than an altar. the newer church is under renovation so hard to get the whole feeling. you need to...

Cathedral is under construction, but still blissful in its beauty. Really superb artwork, great paintings and ceilings. Once it’s finished with restorations will be superb.

Just a block away from our apartment was the Cathedrale St. Etienne. This beautiful mis-shaped cathedral is full of life, there were many locals visiting this place to pray and experience the peace in the heart of the city. In the evenings, we would sit outside and watch the local dog walkers let their dogs play in the grass. We... More

Usually the cathedral is the premier church in any city, but in Toulouse the church to visit is the Basilique St Sernin. The cathedral compares poorly to cathedrals in other cities, and it looks like it was designed by committee.

At end of great high shopping street lies this special church, which is one of my favorites in town. Built over time and u can see the varied periods ....the feeling from the immense space is one of its treasures

This cathedral is an odd place, which makes it worth visiting. It has a rather plain southern gothic nave, and a later and more flamboyant northern gothic choir. The two halves are, bizarrely, completely out of line - so you can't see the high altar from the back of the nave. There's not a huge amount to see, and there... More

Wonderful stailglass windows, small little chapels, maybe the best cathedral in Toulouse. You can spend hours to watch all the beautiful details.

Absolutely beautiful and well worth the stop. This church has stained glass window, beautiful art work, and just overall beauty. I felt as though I had taken a brief step back in time.
