Housed in an entirely brick building built in the 13th century, Church of Les Jacobins has a massive, even austere exterior that contrasts with its extraordinarily light-filled interior. Inside the palm, 22 ribs support the choir of this Southern Gothic church. The cloister, sanctuary, chapter house, and chapel contain original relics of St. Thomas Aquinas, in all their restored glory. The cloister hosts cultural events such as festivals and concerts, and you’ll find temporary exhibitions in the former convent refectory.

Such a beautiful church. I love the modest outside compared to the simple beauty of the inside details. Of course the famous "palmtree" of the Jacobins is a wonderful sight. The choice of colours is quite unsual for a church and that was my favourite part. While I was visiting the cloisters it happened that there was a piano festival happening and I was fortunate to watch a piano seánce just by myself in such an incredible venue.
Very interesting place with intriguing atmosphere. Beautiful church!
