The body of St. Martin after death was brought to Tours in a stone enclosure and above this St. Britus and St. Perpetuus built the simple chapel initially and afterwards a basilica which was destroyed from fire in 1230 and rebuilt. Again it was destroyed from the Protestants’ attack on their object of hatred and despite being restored by the canons, it had to undergo the revolutionary attack of 1793 when it was brought down almost completely. In December 1960 the tomb of St. Martin was excavated and still preserved with a basilica built on it by the Archbishop of Tours. This is small but every year on 11 November the feast of St. Martin is religiously observed by the believers of Tours as well as the people from rural and urban areas of diocese. (Knight, 2012). It comprises a lantern bulb on the dome when it was reconstructed after a fire and this imparts a Renaissance characteristic form to the church. The pillars supporting the façade are a rare form of architecture giving a bulky look in contrast to the airy apse windows the Baroque organ case of 1755 in the spacious interior and the beardless Christ head are some rare features symbolizing gothic elements. This collegiate church of St. Sernin in Toulouse is significant for its imposing architecture and medieval stoneworks especially the rare frescoes. St. Sernin was the first bishop of Toulouse and his body was buried by the neighbourhood Christian community in a wooden box on which the first shrine was built by Bishop Exupere.
