Travel Tips for Albi

Go off road

by Renteboy

As I mentioned in an other tip, go en explore some roads that are not described in the guide. There is a nice trairway that brings you from the center of town (behind the Catedral) to the river "Le Tarn" ... It was baricaded but if want to go for it ... just do it ;-)

And the entrance, in case you missed. . . .

by kokoryko

Flamboyant gothic . . . . in fact at the southern entrance of the cathedral you can have an introduction of what is awaiting you when you will enter the cathedral; there is a baldaquin (in French!), a four poster arch, which is a contrast to the austere brick building. The carved arches and vaults (picture 1) are just an exquisite example of flamboyant Gothic architecture, so light, aerial. . .
Angels and apostles stand next the pillars, and you notice (picture 2) the rich detailed carvings, the helical pillar, and the window, on the left with the Virgin in front. Experts may identify easily each apostle or angel, as they are in very good conservation condition (picture 3).
An interesting sundial is on the western side of the entrance (picture 4); this sundial gives only the hours of the afternoon, and not as usual, with the shade of the stick, but with the shade of the lower branch of the star at the end of the stick; but it gives also the inclination of the earth vis a vis the ecliptic, the seasons, the months. . . . To see the morning hours, go to see the sundial on the eastern side. . . . and. . . promised, I will make a picture on a sunny day next time. . . . ! :-) !
At night (picture 5), the baldaquin looks very nice too, and the plays of light and shade give another dimension to Gothic architecture. . . . .

Albi...the place where Toulouse Lautrec was born..

by leosantanajr

To tell you the truth, I went there just to see the Toulouse Lautrec Musee, but when I got there I saw there are a lot of other things to see....
....I went there during the summer time, and I can say it's pretty hot...
Besides the old buldings, a lot of nice stores in the old town.
