Attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, the Couvent des Jacobins is a must for anyone visiting the La ville en rose. An imposing building and a gem of southern Gothic art, it surprises with its light interior lines, the two rosettes of its church and its aerial stained glass windows filtering an iridescent light. Among other things, one can see palm tree columns, an architectural curiosity dating from the 13th century supporting an impressive vault 28 metres high. The Couvent des Jacobins is also a cultural centre of the city of Toulouse where people come to enjoy concerts or exhibitions. And for dreamers, sun loungers placed under the arcades of the cloister make it possible to savour the atmosphere of the places.
