The origin of Saint Anthony…
…a hotel of inspiration in Albi.
Anthony The Great, born in Egypt in 251, is considered the founder of hermit life.
He was the son of a rich Christian family and followed the gospel literally, giving all of his worldly goods to the poor and going to live as a hermit in the desert. There he went through various temptations by the devil that he was able to resist. The life of Saint
Anthony and his temptations have inspired numerous artists such as Tiepolo, Bosch, Bruegel, Cézanne or Dali…
as well as the Antonine Order.
Saint Anthony watches over you in Albi in our four stars hotel… in our charming, characteristic and comfortable rooms.
