Albi is one of the touristiest places in the South-West of France. Carcassone and Toulouse are not far and the red banks of the river Tarne reveal the clay, which is used to make bricks for building the local houses. The crusade against the Cathares of Albi is an important part of the town’s history. The artistic inheritance can be seen in Sainte-Cecile’s Cathedral which has its reputation from the talented writers born in Albi like Toulouse-Lautrec or the count of Laperouse. You will be amazed by one of the most preserved historic sites of France, which is the old town of Albi.
