A slice of life in France - snapshots of Albi, Tarn

Albi is the capital of the département of Tarn in the southwest of France and just an hours drive away from one of the country's largest cities, Toulouse.

Set on the river Tarn, it's architecturally stunning with a host of staggering buildings that will boggle any visitor with its centuries of history.

Among them are the Sainte Cécile Cathedral and the Palais de la Berbie, but there's also the Pont Vieux, originally built in stone back in the 11th century and later clad in the town characteristic red brick.

Oh yes, and it's also home to the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum, which contains over one thousand works of its most famous son, the painter Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa.
