  • Exceptional evidence of Southern Gothic architecture, this brickwork giant houses the relics of St Thomas Aquinas in the shade of its giant palm tree.

    The Jacobins Convent is a jewel of medieval art. A gigantic building that is both sober and original, it is home to a church that is unique in its genre. With an austere exterior, it astonishes visitors once inside with its luminosity, the lightness of its vaults and its double nave that ends with a spectacular stone palm tree with 22 leaf veins.

    Beneath its altar are the relics of the Dominican friar Thomas Aquinas. Its walls are entirely painted with trompe l’œil that imitates marble, considered more noble than brick.

    The cloister, the former refectory, the chapel of the Virgin and the chapel of Saint-Antonin are cool and tranquil stop-offs that also host concerts and exhibitions.

    Visits are highly interactive (touchscreen tablets, family trail…): quite a modern convent!
