Beautiful church with south western gothic architecture and octagonal tower. It is located a short walk from the old Town in the saint cyprian area just to the west of the Garonne river and can be seen in the distance just over the bridge near hospice de la grave. At the time of visiting it was very peaceful and quiet, it is well worth a visit while in Toulouse.

Saint Nicolas Catholic Church in Toulouse is a beautiful small building that has a lot of history and charm. Keep in mind that the lighting inside is low and that natural light comes in through the high windows only. Your pictures might need more light to be clearer, but your visit will still be memorable.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
