One of the must-see attractions in Toulouse is the Saint Sernin Basilica. This beautifully preserved Romanesque church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the largest remaining Romanesque building in Europe. Located in the historic district of Toulouse, the basilica has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries, and it's easy to see why.

Walking into the basilica, you'll be struck by the impressive architecture and grandeur of the space. The basilica's nave, or central area, is lined with columns and arches, and the high ceilings create a sense of awe-inspiring vastness. The intricate carvings and sculptures throughout the basilica reveal the skill and artistry of the craftsmen who built it.

One of the most notable features of the Saint Sernin Basilica is its collection of relics, including the tomb of Saint Saturnin, the patron saint of Toulouse.
