LIGHT ON: Carole alias une_fille_davril, Albigensian instagramer and passionate about Albi who will tell us about her city
What is your favorite(s) in Albi?
They are numerous:
- The view of Sainte-Cécile Cathedral et Berbie Palace from the old bridge which provides an overview of the episcopal city.
- The Gardens of the Berbie Palace. I admire both the formal gardens and the panorama over the banks of the Tarn.
- The choir of the canons of Sainte-Cécile cathedral, decorated with statues of polychrome angels, all different.
- Mediafixer paintings from the vault of the cathedral.
If you had to define Albi in two words?
A box of bricks.
What is your favorite Albigensian / Tarn dish? or aperitif?
My greedy side inclines me to hold back the gimblettes (crown-shaped biscuit, flavored with citron and lemon), the Jeannots (triangular biscuit with anise. Tip: to be enjoyed with a square of chocolate).
I recommend you the chocolatier Julien Gayraud, 2 rue de l'Oulmet. Besides the chocolates, I invite you to taste the Panettones.
Which Instagram photo are you most proud of?
A photo posted May 1, 2021 : a pretty red rose that surrounds the Sainte-Cécile cathedral. Taken from the Castelviel district.
Finally, to conclude our interview, what do you want for Albi for this year 2022?
In this centenary of Toulouse-Lautrec Museum, I hope that the city can benefit from a stronger influence.
