  • The entrance is unassuming and visitors must be prepared to venture through it and the vestibule in order to discover this extremely beautiful church that is not short on choirs.

    Situated near to the Place Saint-Pierre, it owes its name to the Carthusian monks who built it at the start of the XVII Century. After having crossed the atrium that shelters the church from the noise of the street outside, you will find two choirs separated by a main double-sided altar made of marble. It is adorned with a magnificent sculpture depicting the Angels crowning the Blessed Sacrament created by Toulouse sculptor François Lucas in 1785.

    The nave of the congregation is decorated with numerous tableaux.
    In the Carthusian choir, 62 sculpted stalls are surmounted by frescoes and stucco bas-reliefs.
    Visitors should be sure not to miss the Sainte-Croix Chapel that displays some exceptional wooden sculptures.
