Cathedral Sainte-Cécile d'Albi

Visitors and friends, you are about to discover the splendour of our cathedral, a jewel in Languedoc’s gothic art. You will be fascinated by the striking contrast between the austerity of the external architecture and the richness of the decoration inside, dating mainly from the time of the Louis d’Amboise bishops (late 15th – early 16th centuries). The visit will introduce you to the great organ, the choir and the Last Judgement. You will also discover the pulpit, the paintings in the vault and the main bays. Having admired the lacework carving of the stone rood screen you will walk around the choir and see the principal sculptures, the side chapels and finally the great choir or sanctuary.
