This really is a wonder and worth a visit. We spent an hour here having a really good look and it was worth every second.

This is worth a visit, it provides a real life challenge that old cathedrals face. Not all have the funding to be restored. It also shows how in the past, these large churches relied on the donations of the elite for stain glass etc... worth a visit.

Probably the nicest in Toulouse, amazing interior sculptures, and a nice garden, it's definitely worth a stop.

If you are visiting Toulouse make the time to visit this beautiful Cathedral just a short walk away from the busy François Verdier metro stop and served by many of the excellent bus services in the Greater Toulouse Area run by Tisséo. I timed it beautifully as there was no service in progress so I could visit the various side... More

The cathedral of Toulouse is not the most impressive church in the city. (I'd recommend the Basilica of St Sernin and the Couvent des Jacobins much more highly.) It was started and then restarted on a different axis - I think that they intended to demolish what had previously been built. The exterior result is startling from the front and... More

The centre of religious activity for the region as well as the City - the cathedral is a truly impressive building, reflecting the different architectural styles of its benefactors over the centuries.

Stumbled on this cathedral and was a challenge to work out its varied styles. Looks a bit hotch-potch but reading about it, in English, helped to appreciate it. Lots of clever carving and unusual organ placement. It's not pretty or grand like most cathedrals but interesting if you are in the vicinity.

Unfortunately for St Etienne there are some stunning ecclesiastical sites in Toulouse and this does not count as one of the must see. However it is interesting and worth an hour.
