The Church of the Jacobins is a deconsecrated Roman Catholic church located in Toulouse, France. It is a large brick building whose construction started in 1230, and whose architecture influenced the development of the Gothique méridional (southern Gothic) style. The relics of Thomas Aquinas are housed there. In the two centuries following the dissolution of the Dominican Order at the time of the French Revolution it served various different purposes before undergoing major restoration in the 20th century. In the early 21st century it is a museum.

Beautiful former church/place of worship definitely worth seeing especially during the sunny days. This is because the building boasts huge windows with colorful stained glass which beautifully illuminate the whole interior of the place. High ceilings are also very impressive and for those looking for some spirituality there are remains of St Thomas Aquinas, a priest, philosopher and theologian. Access is free, though if you want to see cloisters, gardens etc you need to buy a ticket for, as far as I remember €4.
Great and historic spot. 4eur to enter the gardens. Totallyworthit.
From architectural standpoint this is probably one of the most valuable buildings in the city. Clay bricks give a chromatic identity, as many other illustrious ancient place in Toulouse. Strong Hispanic influence. Inside cloister very quiet relaxing atmosphere.
I believe it is one of the most beautiful sites to visit in Toulouse. Sits right behind the lively streets of Rue Gambetta, it is a tranquil place to hide from city charms, and its beautiful garden (with extra admission) is a must see! In September, they hold open air piano concerts throughout the month, giving great opportunities to enjoy the music in this special place. If you are a music lover, it is true retreat.
Great place to host Saint Thomas Aquinas relics, a great chance to honour him and his colossal works to bring God's wonders accessible to people : Summa Theologica & Compendium. Must read!
The church itself is an architectural wonder. There is a mirror set up where you can observe the ceiling which is marvelous. The golden shrine of St. Thomas Aquinas is the center of the building. It is sparsely furnished but because of this you can observe more of the actual building construction and the original paint remnants. A church worth seeing if you are in Toulouse.
This major convent of the Domenican order offers a stunningly large church with beautiful stained glass ceilings and supporting pillars. A golden box underneath the central altar holds the remains of Thomas Aquinas. Entry to the church is free. There is a small fee of you want to visit the adjacent courtyard and scriptorium.
