Église-Abbatiale Saint Volusien is located in the old town of Foix, a city in South of France. It was built in a Gothic-style. In fact it was firstly built in the 12 th Century, but it was ruined and reconstructed again about the 17th Century. Nowadays, it is a big church located in the cnter of the town. Nowadays, you can visit this one nave church, where you see a nice orgue.

Once a full-scale abbey, only the imposing church remains, in the heart of the old town. The exterior is more visually striking than the interior, its variety of construction materials rendering it something of a curiosity - it's clear that it has been frequently altered and/or patched up over the centuries. The inside is sober, not especially beautiful, but there are some interesting elements; the organ, the mise-au-tombeau behind the choir, and the carved choir stalls, all different, vying with each other in fantastical creatures of every sort.

Rarely open, as in common for a church in the area, but a nice town church. We were able to slip in, exchange rings and visit after a service but were told to leave soon after. It was a bit surprising for a house of worship.

We explored Foix with the primary goal of visiting the chateau. Stumbling upon the Church of Saint Volusien was simply lagniappe. It suffered serious damage during religious wars, and has encountered a series of damaging restorations. It is worth a quick visit.

St. Volusian's church is a huge building in the centre of Foix which is very interesting to visit. On entering the church, you will see the large biblical paintings on the walls and the many altars along the sides, one of which depicts a stone carving of the last supper with Mary Magdalene clearly depicted as one of the disciples. There is also a section on the life of St. Volusian. Much of the original paintwork on the fantastic carvings on the altars are faded out and have not been restored which is a shame.

We visited Foix for the day and took a look round the church as part of our visit. The church was undergoing heavy restoration work all around its outside. Having visited the Catherdral at Mirepoix a couple of days previous, this church was a bit of a disapointment. Not too much to see for such a large building.

Walking around the church made us very curious, we definitely wanted to have a look inside. But we were really disappointed. There a just a few paintings and that is it.

the church and its founding saint are very sus but it looks very sad and battered from outside. it has suffered many changes and much neglect over the centuries. not that impressive inside and many of the alter pieces are faded and look unloved. take special note of the choir seats for the monks ... they have gorgeous carved arm rests.

Although badly damaged in the wars of religion, and unimaginatively restored, this church has some fine feaures: the Moorish-influenced south door, the amazingly thick walls, the XVIc choir stalls, the deposition tableau.
