Photographer's Note

Some bulbs site lurking on this photo ... but the lady is under renovation!

Albi Cathedral, built from 1282, is the largest brick cathedral in the world, 113 m long, 35m wide. It surprises the visitor who is often compared to a real 'castle'. Monument unparalleled, she asserted her power through a typical style of the Southwest of France, Southern Gothic. Installed on one of the heights of the city, as a base, Albi Cathedral Sainte-Cécile is the witness of the Christian faith after the Cathar heresy. His unique style is enhanced by its interior, a true Christian art museum. It is the only cathedral in Europe whose walls and ceilings are painted entirely on an area covering approximately 18,500 m2.
