Saint-Sernin is the most important monument in Toulouse with its reputation and impressive size.

But it is not limited to that. Saint-Sernin was one of the major Western shrines. Since the end of the Roman Empire, it was superior to all sacred places where religious fervor was nourished in its legitimate desire to bring life’s mysteries together with the hereafter, an integral part of mankind.

As part of Christian thought, this fundamental interrogation found several answers in this site. It generated the highest level of artistic creation in the architecture, paintings, and sculpture. The latter is one of the most beautiful examples of Roman art in Europe around 1100, a privileged moment in art history in both the world and the city capitalizing on the leading material, intellectual, and spiritual resources and exerting its influence in Southwest of France, the Iberian Peninsula, and Italy.

Entrance in the church is free, except for in the ambulatory and the crypts.
Presently, touristic and guided visits for groups are not authorized during religious ceremonies and Sunday morning services.
