SAN BERNARDO BASILICA
Petit Futé's opinion on SAN BERNARDO BASILICA
The Basilica of Saint-Sernin is a majestic and historic construction of the eleventh century a reference for the pilgrimers of the time. The completion of the transept and part of the nave was effective in 1180. You shouldn't miss this golden opportunity to appreciate sacred relics and hear the interesting history of the church. In fact, everything goes back to the third century, with the first bishop of Toulouse, Saint Saturnin who was attached to a bull by the native pagans. The animal dragged the holy man who died by the north gate of the city. Two women called saintes Puelles buried him at the precise location of his fall, and a small church "Notre Dame du Taur" was built over his tomb. Saint-Sernin remained a "simple" collegiate church until 1878, when it was finally consecrated basilica. The great organ of the Basilica of St. Sernin (fifty-four games over three manuals and pedal with exactly 3458 pipes) completed in 1889 by Cavaillé-Coll are renowned in the world. It was opened on April 3, 1889 by Alexandre Guilmant. The instrument was renovated and today, the Basilica of St. Sernin is one of the most impressive monuments in Toulouse
