Situated in the Tarn department in south central France, Albi is a small town with a population of about 50,000. Located about 85km northeast of Toulouse it’s a beautiful city (too big to be classified as a “village”) with a huge 13th century cathedral (Cathédrale Sainte-Cécile) and the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum, which is located in the Palais de la Berbie, one of the oldest and best preserved castles in France. This past summer I passed through Albi on my way to Turenne. I stopped for several hours, walked around the main part of the city and took some photographs. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day and I really enjoyed my visit there. It’s definitely a town I would like to return to and spend some time in.
