this is one charming medieval town.
the cathedral is really huge and the murals inside are really eerie as which
depict the last judgment and hell.
I saw a banana tree in one shot...and how does it fare during winter?
absolutely a great coverage of the city and thank you for sharing.

France has got countless of gorgeous cities, but Albi sure is one of the most beautiful!
Thanks for sharing.

A banana tree? Are you sure? That's surprising, I know that some species of palm trees can live there, but I don't think banana trees could.

A little higher, at the middle-slope, the former bulwarks of Berbie offer the same point of view on the right bank, in more vertiginous.






The former military exercise place transformed into garden:

I visited this town in 2002. The pictures bring back the good memories. Albi is really charming but also impressive.
I remember that the region was just full of beautiful medieval towns and villages, like Cahors, Cordes, St Circ, Collonges-la-rouge, Conques, Figeac and Rocamadour. The region is definitelly worth a visit.

Thanks all for your comments.
For those who want an overview of most of the cities you're talking about, Wapper, here is a promotional video of Midi-Pyrenees region : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2w73...eature=related

Saint Salvi is the other church of the old Albi. It has half destroyed but well fitted out cloister.

Here, as in Toulouse, the blue dye of the pastel made the fortune of traders in 16th century. I would have liked showing you some beautiful mansions, but their door was always closed .




The city hall gives an idea of what what they look like in the secret of their courtyard:




Well, it is finished! Very busy day, too short to see everything!




Did you like Albi? Then you would probably appreciate Toulouse.
