Although we’ve been here nearly a year, we still haven’t seen a lot of the local sites. So on a recent date night, Stoney and I toured the Basilica of St. Sernin right here in Toulouse. I’ve seen quite a few basilicas at this point, so I was wondering if I would find much “new.” Well, yes…
the mix of stone and “pink” brick
the multi-tiered bell tower
the soaring barrel-vaulted ceiling, in a very old basilica
the upper gallery
There are concerts here on occasion, and I have hopes of attending one. I am very curious what the acoustics are in here. It made for a lovely date, and a cool escape from warm weather.
