The Episcopal City of Albi
Albi is a town in south-western France, located about 75 km from Toulouse . It is the capital of the Tarn department. Its uniqueness comes from his episcopal city, which came in the List of World Heritage in August 2010.
Here you will visit a number of medieval buildings, witnesses of the Albigensian power. It is notably composed of the Old Bridge and the Saint-Salvi, both built between the tenth and eleventh century. You will also find the Sainte-Cécile Cathedral , the largest cathedral ever built in brick in the world, dating from the thirteenth century. It will be supplemented later by the Berbie Palace. The latter houses the museum of the painter Toulouse-Lautrec. The whole is surrounded by charming period houses.
The city has a dozen hotels in the Renaissance, most of which are classified as "Historic Monument". Many restaurants are also on site.
Albi is accessible from Toulouse via the A68 motorway or by train.
