About

On the banks of the Garonne, Notre-Dame-de-la-Daurade is home to the Black Virgin, adorned in her most beautiful finery in dresses signed by Christian Lacroix, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and other great couturiers. Closed outside the services.

Built in the fifth century on the remains of an ancient temple, its decoration favored mosaics with gold leaf, hence its name of Daurade. In the 9th century, it was integrated into a Benedictine monastery and extended by a nave and a cloister, on the site of which the Fine Arts School is now located.
The church had to be demolished at the end of the 18th century and completely rebuilt.

Also called Our Lady the Black, it houses a black Virgin, protector of the city and its future mothers.

After two years of work the basilica of Notre-Dame la Daurade opens its doors for you. Discover the impressive neoclassical architecture, the famous Black Virgin, protector of the city and pregnant women, as well as the monumental paintings of the life cycle of the Virgin Mary by the painter Joseph Roques.
