Guided tour : History and architecture

A medieval monastery at the heart of the city - Eight centuries of history

Guided tour

The Jacobins, a Dominican monastery built in 1229, is an exceptional testimony to southern gothic design.This brick architecture uses the same principles developed for the cathedrals of the Kingdom of France.Visit the convent: the church, the sacristy, the cloister, the chapterhouse, Saint Anthoninus chapel.

Immerse yourself in the Dominican Order history, whose influence shaped both the spiritual and cultural landscape of Toulouse during the middle-age. Marvel at the intricate rib vaults of the church, admire the delicate rose window, and explore the quiet cloister where monks once walked in contemplation.

Whether you are passionate about history, an architecture aficionado, or simply seeking a moment of serenity amidst the bustling streets of Toulouse, our guided tours offer an rewarding journey through time.
