St Aubin Church
St Aubin Church is the namesake of this neighborhood, and a natural first stop for any visitor to the area. Bordered by the Boulevard Lazare Carnot and the Canal du Midi, this church’s imposing structure was composed as the result of a local competition. Built on the grounds of an ancient cemetery in a style that combines Gothic, Roman and Byzantine styles, its construction began in 1847. This was the largest religious construction in Toulouse in the entire 19th century, an undertaking which sparked much controversy over building timelines and budgets. Despite the fuss, its doors opened triumphantly to the public in 1853, and it continues to serve St. Aubin’s locals faithfully to this day. On certain Sundays, this Catholic Church is also known to open for Orthodox ceremonies.
