… touristic treasures

Albi, a town of art and history, is proudly settled on the banks of the Tarn River. It offers numerous touristic treasures such as the Sainte-Cécile Cathedral, which is the biggest cathedral made of bricks in the world, the former Archbishops’ Palace with its beautiful garden that overlooks the river, the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum and the Lapérouse Museum (both Henri de Toulouse Lautrec and Jean-François de La Pérouse were from Albi), the Saint-Salvy Church and its Roman Monastery, … Albi is also the ideal starting point for a wide array of excursions: the Tarn Valley and the Ambialet site,  the picturesque medieval towns Cordes, Castelnau de Montmirail and Puycelsi, the vineyards of Gaillac, the Aveyron Gorges, Carcassonne, Toulouse and the not-to-be-missed Millau Viaduct.
