Albi Cathedral
(13)
This Jubé dates from the early sixteenth century. Originally the pulpit from where the priest read the sacred texts always beginning with the words "Jube Domine Benedicere" translated as "Lord deign to bless". The repetition of this phrase gave this place the name of the first word. It is carved in soft limestone which with the passage of time has been hardened. Initially there were horcinas containing 75 statues which unfortunately were destroyed during the revolution. It has three side doors giving access to the aisle, the center one leading directly to the choir.

Palaces in Albi
Palais de la Berbie
(11)
A few meters from the Cathedral of Santa Cecilia is the impressive Palace that was constructed in the thirteenth century by Bernard of Combret as host of the bishops of Albi. Over time, as desired by the bishops, this fortress gradually became a residence with great recreational facilities. Also take note of the beautiful French garden that was ordered under the reign of Louis XIV to be created below the old garrison of the first archbishop of Hyacinthe Serroni. Today it houses the Museum "TOULOUSE Lautrec" which contains the largest number of works of the famous painter worldwide. It´s expressly forbidden to take pictures and videos inside.

A very small, original restaurant popular with the locals. From the moment you enter, you can smell the delicious sweet and savoury souffles - there's something for everyone. The menu is varied, from scallop souffle to salted caramel, and the bright colours create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The wooden terrace is perfect in good weather. Book in advance, especially if you're going at the weekend, as it fills up fast.

Pont Neuf (New Bridge)
(2)
The Pont Neuf (New Bridge) is, as its name suggests, the newest bridge in the city of Albi, in the south of France. It was built in 1868 with the arrival of the railroad, and is a huge, impressive structure. A savage battle took place here on August 22, 1944, between the resistance and a German column. Be sure to cross it, as it offers a stunning panorama of the city.
Squares in Albi
Place du Vigan
(2)
Place du Vigan Albi is what the Champs Elysees is to Paris: THE place in town! This is where you need to go with your family, partner, friends ... whoever you're travelling with! The recent reform of the square has been a great success: a beautiful garden with a kiosk, an antique carousel, and a wonderful fountain which enables you to run between the jets. A great place to go to enjoy the summer.
Museums in Albi
Centre d'Art Le Lait
This contemporary art centre has the distinction of being installed in the two main cities on the River Tarn, Albi, and Castres, in beautiful heritage sites. You can see the work or the artist Buren (also responsible for the columns at the Royal Palace in Paris) in lovely surroundings, with breathtaking views of the river. A great place to enjoy boundary-pushing, contemporary art in an unusual way.
Golf Courses in Albi
Golf d'Albi Lasbordes
One of the best golf courses on which I've had the opportunity to play. The route's not clear, the fairways are wide and relatively long, it's really not easy to score. The holes on the edge of the Tarn are incredibly beautiful and the most important part of the course is that the greens are perfect. It's surprising when it's 32 degrees. The only flaw of the golf course, is that it's a bit far. The prices are good (55€ for 18 holes), it's worth taking a tour of the restaurant and terrace. You need a handicap of least 20 if you want to enjoy it.
Historical Monuments in Albi
La Salle du Trésor
The Cathedral of St. Cecilia, a true symbol of victory against heresy. This is where my mother got married (lucky!), and it's an absolute gem. You can see paintings and sculptures from the Renaissance, and admire beautiful pieces of gold, silver and precious stones.
