Toulouse


Toulouse has lots of very important monuments. Our favorite is St. Sernin, so we went here first.
It is a gem of romanesque architecture, begun about 1070, was built over 400 years. But the Western facade with the spires were never built. This facade is unworthy to the rest of the church.


The cathedral from inside, with crypt.



The Jacobine church.

River Garonne, navigable, very important water transportation route to the Atlantique. Canal du Midi joins the Garonne not far from Toulouse.

Hotel Assezat, a beautiful renaissaince palace on our way to the Augustin museum.


At last we arrived to the museum.

One last church: St. Etienne.


And a few more pictures on the city: donjon, town hall.
