Albi - Home of Toulouse-Latrec
What a beautiful city it is! If you have a love of history, then Albi beckons. Albi, located in the Midi-Pyrenees, is a small, charming French city with a remarkable old center which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In the photo you see Sainte Cecile Cathedral in the background and the Palais Berbie, now the Toulouse-Lautrec museum, in the foreground.
Sainte-Cécile is the largest red-brick cathedral in the world. It is a masterpiece of the Southern Gothic style, built between the 13th and 15th centuries. It is characterized by a strong contrast between its austere, defensive exterior and its sumptuous interior decoration.
