This cathedral is really unusual and very interesting to see. Amazing decorations and stonework. We even had the luck to have a young choir practising which enhanced the experience.

Incredible Cathedral but care if you are using audio system. Ours didn't work particularly well! Get a combined ticket with Musee Toulouse-Lautrec which is located next to cathedral.

Dear Jan I did a calculation back of envelope last year and I arrived at 35-40 millions of bricks. It is a good idea for a chat at the end of a good meal. Cheers Jean-Jacques from Rabastens (Tarn)
