This magnificent monastery and its peaceful cloister have had a stormy history. The construction of the church took more that 100 years! It is the resting place of Saint Thomas Aquinas, thought to be one of Christianity's greatest theologians. There is plenty for the eyes to feast upon at in this extraordinary Gothic edifice. The floor is black marble, and the apse, called The Palm of Jacobins is quite famous. On the head of one of the columns, a bull's head symbolizes the martyr, Saint Saturnin.
