Travel Tips for Albi

St.-Salvy: Enter the Cloister

by hquittner

The Cloister is south of the church. Only the south gallery of the cloister remains, along with the northwest angle alonside the church wall. When we visited long ago, nothing had been done to make it more attractive, but the worn late Romanesque (13C) figurative capitals could be discerned. The cloister had been redone in the 13C by Vidal de Malvasi and he and his brother are buried in an attractive mauoleum in the cloister, also showing great wear, The cloister close was unadorned then, except for some old trees.

boat trip

by Renteboy

There is an opertunity to take a boat trip on the river "Le Tarn". Ask for more details in the Information desk. I didn't do it, there where to many tourist queing and was not attracted by that. Instead we enjoyed the view of the river itself.

Fontaine Verdusse

by kokoryko

Dare to have a . . . . . rest in Roman toilets! Gentlemen have a rest, go in restrooms, toilets, and ladies go to powder their nose in restrooms, check their appearance or do what they have to do. Roman toilets were latrines, there was no mixing of sexes, as they were common rooms, seats next one to the other, and we do not know if the original Roman here were for male or female. . . . .
In fact the Fontaine Verdusse is an old fountain known here since antique times, and the Roman laid it out, but despite my words above, nothing gives hints there were latrines; it is today a public toilet, and that made me think of roman latrines! So, have a rest in a roman fountain would be more suitable.
This fountain has been built and re-built several times and when you go down the steps inside, it appears to you as it was in the beginning 20th century; at that time it was still used by washerwomen who worked next to big basins fitted with washboards (picture 2); now they are decorated with some plants (picture 3) . The water is not anymore flowing from the lions’ heads (picture 1) as it was in the past as this drawing shows (picture 4).
Well, serious tip: if, in emergency, whilst visiting the old city, you do not want to step in a café or waste time looking for a public toilet, you can run to the Fontaine Verdusse!
Fontaine Verdusse is located at the crossing of Rue Verdusse and Rue du Général Sybille, North west corner of Place La Pérouse, next to the fountain where you will see this modern Siren (picture 5); a small sign indicates “Toilettes publiques”.
