  The Cathedral and Old Town
by hquittner
 
 

Albi is one of the most attractive and famous cities in the Midi. It has a famous fortress-like Cathedral which contains a late 14C painted and frightening Last Judgement mural that is unique of its type. The Cathedral and the old Town sit on a commanding height looking over the Tarn River and its bridges. The older buildings, like those in other places nearby are built of red brick. A day or more could be profitably spent there
