EGLISE SAINT PIERRE DES CHARTREUX
The church is located near the square Place Saint-Pierre. Mysterious, it can be discovered behind a large vestibule.
The church of Saint-Pierre des Chartreux is located near st. Peter's square, at 21 rue Valade. From 1602 to 1790 it was the main place of worship for the old Toulouse Chartreuse. The remains of the great cloister of the monastery are still visible in the gardens of the University of Toulouse 1 Capitole.
From the front porch you enter an atrium, which was formerly reserved for the unbaptized or catechumens. It provides access to a covered passage with a long gallery of brick columns alongside a small garden.
The church has two naves. The high altar separates the front nave from the one for the monks, which lies behind it. The striking marble sculptures of two worshipping angels at either side of the altar are by François Lucas, member of a Toulouse family which produced celebrated artists. The nave of the faithful together with the nave of the monks contain many paintings, huge stucco bas-reliefs of the virtues by Pierre Lucas, and fine stalls, all of which constitute a rich, refined, and harmonious whole.
Standing beside the University of Law and very close to the city centre with its thriving student life, Saint-Pierre des Chartreux has been the student catholic parish of Toulouse since 2006
