Albi, the red town

Cathedral of Sainte Cécile : This powerful and monumental structure is the largest brick building in the world. A Southern gothic masterpiece, there is a striking contrast between the defensive architecture of the exterior and the sumptuousness and extravagance of the interior.

Palais de la Berbie : This imposing fortress was completed at the end of the thirteenth century and offers a glimpse of times and spiritual outlook of the Bishops of Albi.

Toulouse Lautrec Museum : The former Episcopal place, built in the thirteenth century, provides an unusual setting for the paintings of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, a native of Albi.

Lapérouse Museum : Jean-François Galaup de Lapérouse, a famous explorer, born into a noble family from Albi.
