Travel guide to Albi
Bridge over river Tarn
Bridge over river Tarn
Albi, the principal city of the Tarn Departement, has at least four claims to fame. One that may sound silly but is very important to vegetarians [including vegans] is that it has an imaginative vegetarian reataurant. [see travel tip on le Tournesol.]
The next two are based on past inhabitants. Lapérouse, the explorer, lived in Albi and there is a museum to its other famous citizen, Toulouse-Lautrec
that can be warmly recommended to anybody visiting the area or passing through en route to the Pyrenees.
The museum is adjacent to the last [but not least] of the four, the Cathedrale de Sainte-Cecille. Built during the Gothic period, it resembles a fortress more than a typical cathedral from the outside, whilst inside it is quite extravagantly ornate. This can be loved or hated but it well deserves to be seen.
