“Superb stained glass.”

Church of Les Jacobins
Ranked #2 of 180 things to do in Toulouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 1, 2013

With the sun shining on the south side wonderful colours on the north wall, north side deep shades of blue.
Architecturally interesting with the column designs, great gothic building unusually in brick.
Currently undergoing restoration but still worth a visit

The Church is amazing and you definitely should go there and see the unusual pillar construction. Entrance to the church is free, but to get in the cloister you pay 4 euro each. I am all for supporting the institution, but if you are budget conscious, skip the cloister - there is nothing that is (apparently) of extra special interest in there, aside from a bathroom. If you've seen the cloister at the Musee Des Augustins then there's not too much more to see here.

Amazing architecture, with a huge circular mirror so you can view the ceiling looking down instead of up!

Although surrounded by unprepossessing maintenance works, the church was still open and takes your breath away when you enter. The massive columns, unusually down the middle of the nave, branch out into 'palm-tree' arches on the roof.

There's not much else to see in the church (unless you pay extra for the cloisters) but make sure you go to the end pillar to look into a mirror around the base so that you can see the 'fronds' above in more detail without cricking your neck!

For those of a mathematical bent, the lycee (college) opposite was the home of Pierre Fermat (of 'Fermat's Last Theorem' fame), and you can find his statue in the Musee d'Augustins about a quarter of a mile away.

This place was big. I didn't actually go in the crypts, so maybe there is soemthign amazing down there. The Basilique Sernin was a bit more impressive.
