However, it was on the "to see" list from TripAdvisor and so we made our way towards the chapel. not exactly impressive from the outside and we would have walked past it if not for the map telling me we were there. Once inside,... More

Must to see in Toulouse, there's no so many places in Toulouse by which you get impressed, this Chapelle is exception. Beautiful paintings will take your breath away.

You wouldn't expect it from looking at the church's simple façade. Then you enter and you'll be awestruck with the impressive murals and paintings.

I just had a few moments in the Chapelle des Carmelites because there was an event going on. The paintings are exquisite! I must spend more time in the Chapelle on my next trip to Toulouse.

This chapel is tucked away, and is a real surprise. The painted ceiling is magnificent, but the chapel has hardly any visitors. Free entry.

This Ex church is amazing. It is quite bare inside but the paintings on the wall and ceiling are well work the effort to go and see. It's not far out of the way but well worth the visit.

Surprisingly, when I talk to the local about this place, they don't even know it exist. It is one of the best kept secrets of Toulouse, and it is right in centre ville. Beautiful place to enjoy incredible frescos, medidate in silence, escape the tourist traps, and from time to time, a series of concerts. It is small and cozy.... More

if you go to toulouse, you must visit this chapel. other chapels and churchs were not that colourful. the ceiling was covered with paintings like sistine chapel. and the walls were full of big paintings too. it is very near to st.etienne basilica. i recommend you to see it.

We had missed this little chapel on our first visit to Toulouse, despite its location one block form our hotel! This time we were smarter, and were very happy to have seen the beautiful painted scenes and ceiling. When we visited, we were the only ones there beside the caretaker. It is well worth seeing and is free.
