Southern France / Pyrenesse trip – Toulouse’s churches

Toulouse is a large city in France.   I turned back here after I could not proceed any further towards Andorra, see the previous article.

Bars, cafes and shops have all the charm you would expect to see in a French city.

France has a history based on Catholicism, today it is a very secular country.   There are not many evangelical Christians.

When I visited, I did see a nice Christian bookshop which was shut when I went past it on a Thursday evening.

I also saw this really nice church, it’s the Notre-Dame du Taur

Stain glass windows are some of the best I have seen.

This painting of Jesus’ trial looks really good, with his disciples to the right, the Sanhedrin and Roman leaders in the middle and members of the public on the left.

In another part of Toulouse, I spotted this mission tract whilst waiting for the traffic lights, hope more of these do get seen by the French people.

Here’s the book shop I found above.
