Albi – France

Maybe a depressing picture to talk about a brilliant day! On my last birthday, I took a little trip to Toulouse. My hosts decided to give me a “birth-day-trip”, first to Albi, then wine tasting in Galliac. It was a brilliant day! Sooooo hot, with temperatures reaching 41°C, but nothing that a beer across Albi Cathedral can’t solve! This cathedral is just incredible, it is, supposedly, the largest brick building in the world. The details inside are beautiful. The church used to be called “Cathedral of Saint Cecilia of Albi”, and the picture below is the rather realistic sculpture of Saint Cecilia, just after her death. It is an amazing place! It is also the birth place of Toulouse-Lautrec… just thought you’d like to know!
