Interesting Cathedral

Quite an interesting story behind the peculiar facade of the church. Turns out these are two incomplete churches that resulted in its asymmetrical facade and interiors.

Super big and lots to see. Lots of chapels, very pretty stained glass windows. We had just been the Museum Augustine so it was interesting to see a church with various statues still in place. It is free so go visit.

If you like history is a "must". You can see the place were use to sit the "inquisition" tribunal to judge the "heretics". It is a wonderful work of art all in wood.

The neighbourhood with the square infront of the church is amazing, the church is just stunning with very high ceilings, enormous organ and fantastic decor. Must see whilst in Toulouse!

The exterior of the cathedral speaks for itself; however, the interior is truly majestic and captivating. The ceiling height has to be about 120-150' feet tall (roughly 40-50 meters tall). The stained glass windows and the interior architecture include the organ is a testament to the innovative capabilities of its founders. Definitely worth a stop for an hour or so.

Yes every town has a cathedral, very nice example of the Toulouse Brick style construction with elements spanning from the 10th to the 14th century for the construction. Peaceful place to just stop and visit.

We were in Toulouse in last Christmas and visited this place. We took Metro and got down at Espaniol. Atfter seeing Museum des Augustins, we visited this place which was not very far from there. This cathedral was built from 13th to 17th century. It had very rich interior decorations and architecture. Overall it was nice.

A large impressive cathedral with good stained glass windows- we visited a number of churches in Toulouse and this one had some of the best stained glass windows.

maybe less fancy than other cathedrals from the outside due to the use of bricks this cathedral is just beautiful...and other than the maybe better known cathedrals like for example the cologne cathedral just very few people find their way in so u can really feel the calm and majestic atmosphere and let it get to u
