Albi – Country Roads of France
We arrived here in the late afternoon and didn’t have much time to explore Toulouse-Lautrec’s home town. Still feeling under the weather, we dragged ourselves to the Cathedrale Ste-Cecile and were glad that we did as this building is awesome. It’s noted to be the largest brick building in the world and from a distance it gives the impression of a fortress rather than a church. Perhaps, it was intended to warn heretics that the church meant business.
Inside, there is a fully functional organ which was built in 1734-6 by Christophe Moucherel as well as a giant fresco of the Last Judgement.
Unfortunately, due to our late arrival here, we didn’t get to visit the Musee Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec to see his works. Hope you have better luck than we had….
