Wandering around Toulouse, we came upon this church and went inside. It was mostly empty, just a small altar and a few pews in one spot, but the windows were spectacular.
Similar to St. Chapelle in Paris, the stained glass windows were tall & thin & next to each other. The arched ceiling soared to a height of a 5-6 story building.
As we walked along in the cavernous room we could see a round, skirted, mirror-topped table at one end. Curious, we strolled over---are they putting up an exposition, what was this huge empty table for?
As we got closer we could see small tented signs around on the mirror top that said "Don't Touch." Don't touch what??? There was nothing on this approx. 12 ft. in diameter table top.
I walked to the edge, looked down, and BOOM! My heart stopped, my stomach flipped, and I grabbed on to my husband. You see, I am not very good with heights and looking down into this mirror was like looking into the abyss. It's hard to describe, but it reflected up to the 5-6 story arched ceiling of the room. It was like standing on the edge of a high place with no railing, looking down to infinity---YIKES!! We stood and watched many people walk up to the table, look down, and jump back.
The windows were outstanding, but that mirrored table was worth going to this site for that only.
