About Albi

Situated on the banks of the Tarn River in the Central Pyrenees Region in the south of France, Albi is a small and historic city. The foundation story of the city dates back to the Bronze Age. The city, which has rich sources in terms of coal and salt deposits, is the trade and industry center of the region. The main industrial products of the city are cast iron, glass, food, and textile. The city came under the domination of France and the Catholic Church as a result of the Albigeois Crusades in 1209. Cathedrale Sainte Cécile d’Albi, which is the most important historical icon of the city today, was built to symbolize the authority and power of the church at that time. The building that looks like a castle is known as the biggest brick cathedral in the world.

The cathedral was built in 1282 with a Gothic-style architect and its simple exterior architecture is in sharp contrast to its magnificent interior design. Albi is also known as the city where the famous French painter Henri de Toulouse Lautrec was born on 24 November 1864. Famous for his paintings especially about the Moulin Rouge cabaret, the painter contributed a lot in characterizing the "poster" as an art branch today. The most important historical monuments of the city are the Bishop's Palace and the Lautrec Museum right near Cathedrale Sainte Cécile d’Albi and the Old Stone Bridge on the Tarn River. Gaillac Region of Albi, which also stands out with wine production, is very attractive in terms of wine tasting and vineyard tours. The city is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Mediterranean climate is effective in Albi. Albi Sequestre Airport is located 6.6 kilometers to the city center.
