iPhone Photo Dump – St Sernin Basilica, Toulouse, France

We spent a whirlwind 18 hours in Toulouse, France while in Transit to Scotland (where we are now!). We saw the biggest tourist spot – the St Sernin Basilica which is on the list of World Heritage Sites. It was truly magnificent and extremely grand! Enjoy the (terrible iPhone quality) pictures below!

We were in the front row and the altars is still seemingly miles away. Very ornate worship space!

I want to teach at this high school!

Have you ever been to a world heritage site?
What’s your favorite monument (domestic or international)?
