Jacobins Monastery

The Jacobin Monastery in Toulouse was built by the Dominican Order of Toulouse. Attached to the church is the cloister, with its four galleries. Work on the church began around 1230.

During the French Revolution the monks were forced to abandom the monastery. The French State took over the property and the for a time the buildings were used as stables and barracks. The famous relics were moved to the Basilique Saint Sernin in Toulouse. They were returned in 1974.

Thanks by my friend Christopher Johnson for sending the photos.
