In this labourdin-style building, which was burned down in 1419 during the Spanish incursions and rebuilt in stages, the royal wedding was celebrated. Classified as a Historic Monument since 1931, the oldest part of the church dates from the 15th century. The spectacular interior consists of a single nave with three floors and superb wooden galleries. Also to be discovered is the work of sculptor Martin de Bidache: a large 17th century altarpiece with three registers, decorated with a profusion of statues nestled between torsos columns. Since she has been acting as a concert hall (one of the favourite of Toulouse conductor Michel Plasson!), the beautiful lady has never ceased to mention her organ with three keyboards and forty-eight registers (titular Jesus Martin Moro), one of the main instruments of the department. For organ concerts, please contact ✆ 05 59 26 92 71. A must-see building to visit in the heart of the city.
