Sainte-cecile Cathedral Of Albi, Albi Reviews
An interesting church, it’s a must see in Albi. It’s in the city center and surrounded by many small shops and restaurants. I love the mixed colored walls, it’s amazingly painted. Some walls also you can see it has a 3D arts. However the church was built around 666 to 667. It’s a huge church and every corner is a piece of art. It has a wonderful garden inside.
Lost in awe with the beauty and magnificence of the building! The artwork inside is just breathtaking. Utterly wonderful!
Very old and imposing cathedral. Have a lot of paintings and other things to explore. Also it's possible to take audio guide I'd different languages.
You must visit. Everywhere you look inside is a wonder for your eyes. Photos barely do justice to the cathedral. But I have posted a few. We visited at Easter time 2017.
Spectacular cathedral and one of the most prominent ones in France. Located in the heart of Albi, it is a must visit place! The building dominates the landscape. Although couldn't visit the interiors as it closed 15 mins before we arrived, but have heard about it's beautiful frescos inside! Have to visit it next time!
