      We have just got home after 8 hours walking around the sights of Albi. It has the world's largest brick cathedral, St Cecile Cathedral, and from the outside it is almost ugly. As Garth said, it is like a gigantic pile of red bricks! But inside is a different story. It has a 'choir' with choir screens covered in statues of saints and disciples, and just about every bit of wall and the ceilings are covered in paintings. Near the altar is a huge ...

Now it is the tourists who climb the steps to see the restored chapels and the Black Madonna. The steps are steep and we first have to climb up from the parking to the town but we go to the top. Some of the chapels are large with organs and large ...

      Set off to Puycelsi in search of Sunday lunch. Beautiful medieval fortified village on top of a hill with wonderful views. Only restaurant open is fully booked so we just have a potter around before heading off. Next stop Lisle-sur-Tarn, another bastide town, medieval and fortified. 17th Century arcades all round the market square where we find a very late ...

      Lovely coffee stop in Lescure, sitting by one of the 11th Century town gates with its 19th Century clock. On to Franciscan priory and 12th Century shrine, Notre-Dame de la Dreche. Looks very like Albi cathedral if smaller. Built at the same time and seemingly to a similar design. Both look like a bundle ...
