La Mappa Mundi d'Albi classée au Registre du monde, Unesco


In 2010, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee recognised the significant cultural importance of the Episcopal City of Albi by including it on the prestigious World Heritage List as a cultural heritage site. More than 800 000 tourists visit the city every year.

A unique city of medieval brick...

... unique because of its colours, its history, and its situation.

The Episcopal City is centered round two immense medieval buildings:
The Saint-Cecile Cathedral, the largest brick-built cathedral in the world, and the Berbie Palace, the former fortified residence of the Albi bishops, and now the home of the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum with the largest public collection of the artist’s work.

There are 4 medieval districts around the cathedral:

Castelviel, the ancient centre of the city,
Castelnau, a picturesque district with narrow streets and half-timbered houses,
the Saint-Salvi district with its 13th-C collegiate church and cloisters, combining both Romanesque and Gothic architecture,
and The Combes and the banks of the River Tarn with the Old Bridge, dating back to 1040 which was crucial to the commercial prosperity of the city in the Middle Ages.
