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.

This is an incredibly beautiful cathedral. I didn't expect something of this magnitude and this inspiring in Toulouse. Spend 30-60 minutes roaming and staring. There are many, many hidden gems and details throughout.

As most of the churches in Toulouse, this one was also worth spending time in. There is a smaller chapel behind the main cathedral, and we wandered into a wedding taking place there. You could spend a coupe of days just wandering from cathedral to cathedral in Toulouse and enjoy every one.

Wonderful stained glass windows and every alcove has a station of the cross and is dedicated to a different saint, i thought The St. Joan of Arc the most poignant.

i liked the fact that this church is still used liturgically - others are often reduced to mere monuments. But it is rather a curious and eclectic mix of styles with two mis-aligned naves etc. And very dark.

This medium sized cathedral is located a short distance away from the centre and is easy to find using a simple tourist map. It is a solid, brick building in keeping with the surrounding old town, with a rather unattractive separate bell tower. Inside it is cool and open, and very peaceful. The interior walls are plain and unadorned, of... More

Not to be missed. Originally built as a Romanesque structure, but later added on a Gothic addition. Great opportunity to view the architectural styles and compare them.

As my title says its nothing incredible but worth seeing if you're in the area. I seem to remember a metro nearby if walking is an issue too. Wasn't open when I went so walked around it but am sure its nice inside

A very interesting architectural monument. From the beginning incite you the different styles of the two entrances. Inside everything must be admired. Take enough time to view each beauty that will appear "around the corner" It is very different and therefore exciting. It's especially when you're alone in the cathedral and playing the organ !!! You can relax !!!

Very different layout to the other cathedrals we have seen throughout France. But all the same pretty spectacular. If you are to visit this Cathedral give yourself a couple of hours to visit the surrounding area. Extremely interesting and visually pleasing.
