At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Cult and history.

Built under Louis XIII, at the request of the community of Carmelite nuns who settled in Toulouse in 1616, it was designed by Didier Sansonnet, the same architect who built Saint-Exupère church in 1643. The Four Virtues in the first choir bay were created in the late 17th century by Jean-Pierre Rivals. The Toulouse painter Jean-Baptiste Despax completed the chapel decoration between 1747 and 1751.

The municipal library now occupies the site.

The chapel has a single nave with rib vaults and a choir with a hipped roof. Moreover, it is noteworthy for the originality of its oak-panelled ceiling with its vaults with hanging bosses and painted canvases stuck to the wood.
