    The Basilica of Saint-Sernin is what remains of the former Abbey of Saint-Sernin.
    The first basilica dates from the 4th century, and the current building was erected in Romanesque style between 1080 and 1120, with construction continuing in the following centuries. Saint-Sernin is the largest remaining Romanesque building in Europe.
    In 1998 the basilica was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites under the description: World Heritage Sites of the Routes of Santiago de Compostela in France.
    In the church you can see several Romanesque sculpture, as well as paintings and frescoes. Both the church and the crypt host several chapels with relics of saints.

    Le Capitole houses the City Hall and the Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse.
    Building started in 1190, but the current façade (135 m long, over 440 feet) in pink brick, in Neoclassical style, dates from 1750. In the fist half of 19th century the building was redesigned.

    It is possible to visit for free part of it: the courtyard with the Renaissance portal, the wedding hall, the Henry Martin hall, the Hall of Illustriuos, the Council chamber.
    In all the halls there are interesting paintings from the 19th century.
    The "Donjon" (former Capitole tower) is behind the Capitole building in Place Charles de Gaulle, and it currently houses the Tourist Information Office.

    When you enter you are first taken into the main church, which is free to enter and has it's own attractions.

    This then leads to the museum side, which offers a history of the life of the clergy during the middle ages.

    The museum is easy to visit. You can see everything in less than an hour. Yet you get to learn and get educated of the richness of culture and traditions in France specially Toulouse. I like the exhibit re opera, how it started there and how they made the costumes and the stage.

    It seems to stretch beyond its 135m length. Its pink bricks reflect neoclassicism, dating from 1750. The building commands the Place du Capitole area, now reserved for pedestrians. In additon to being the city hall, it also houses an archestra and an opera company.

    The Church of the Jacobins is now deconsecrated church. It is a large brick building whose construction started in 1230, and whose architecture influenced the development of the Southern French Gothic style.
    It is a museum including the church (1229-1350), the refectory (1303), the cloister (1251-1319), the chapel of St. Antonin (1335-1341) and the chapter house (1299-1301).
    Under the altar in the church, the relics of St. Thomas Aquinas are contained in a shrine.

    There is also a small museum, with sacred books, vestments.
    During my visit (April 2024) the refectory was hosting a temporary exhibition about the Cathars.

    A really pleasant park with a variety of shaded and sunny areas. Plenty of seating throughout. A nice cafe, tried the ice cream and crepes, both of which were good.

    St. Stephen Cathedral in Toulouse was built above an 11th century church, itself above a 3rd century church. Works for the current building started in the 13th century, and continued in the following centuries, until a fire destroyed it in 1609, so renovations were started.
    After the French revolution it was converted into a Temple of Reason and several parts were destroyed, until it was returned to the Church in 1802.
    Further damages were caused by a hurricane in 1808, and by a nearby explosion in 1816.
    In 1850 a full scale renovation was started, to restore the church to its former Gothic style. Today it's a mix of styles, that make this church unique and beautiful, even if it still has a feeling of "unfinished".
