MUSEE DES AUGUSTINS
Do you feel like setting up your deckchair in a medieval cloister and admiring the works of art? A haven of peace in the very heart of the city, the former Augustins convent is home to the museum of Fine-Arts.
Open since the Revolution, this is one of the oldest museums in France. Its architecture is typical of Toulouse and offers an exceptional setting for paintings and sculptures dating from the Middle Ages to the 1940s.
The convent ‘s cloister, ideal for strolling around, leads to rooms in which more than 4,000 pieces are on display, including some veritable masterpieces like the capital of the Martyrdom of St John the Baptist or the sculptures of Nôtre-Dame-de-Grasse.
Don’t miss: an installation by contemporary artist Jorge Pardo in the Romanesque sculptures room showcases this exceptional collection.
Temporary exhibitions are always of the very highest order and are regularly updated.
