Jacobin Convent

Recommended
The brick-built Jacobin convent is a fine example of 13C and 14C southern French Gothic architecture. The grandiose church sports a double nave and seven columns supporting a 28m-high vault. On the last column is the famous "palm tree" made up of 22 alternately narrow and wide ribs that support the apse vault. Nowadays the spacious refectory is used for showing temporary exhibitions.
