Welcome to Albi
The bustling provincial town of Albi has two main claims to fame: a truly mighty cathedral and a truly marvellous painter. Looming up from the centre of Vieil Albi (Old Albi) on the south bank of the River Tarn, the Cathédrale Ste-Cécile is one of France's most monumental Gothic structures and one of the largest brick buildings in the world. Next door is the fantastic Musée Toulouse-Lautrec, dedicated to the groundbreaking artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who was born here in 1864 and went on to depict the bars and brothels of turn-of-the-century Paris in his own inimitable style.
