The cloisters now have a lovely garden but still retain the atmosphere of the life of the original residents, the monks. Follow the signs carefully!

This is situated behind the Saint Salvy Church. A very small cloister with a few trees and shrubs. There are stone seats under the shade which is a nice place to rest if you have been walking all round Albi.

We just happened upon this lovely smaller cathedral for nuns. We enjoyed this as it was more intimate than the huge cathedral nearby.

A quiet oasis in the middle of a mercantile area. A gathering spot for locals who want a nice quiet respite in the middle of the day. Lovely spot really.

Albi is absolutely not a stressful frantic place, but if you are feeling a bit tired after exploring the interesting medieval streets and alleyways, this is a good place to come and relax. The church itself is interesting, not least because of the extraordinary mix...More

The most beautiful cloister, off a street in Albi, easily missed if you don't know about it Magnificent architecture and lovely, well-tended flower beds.

Well worth stopping for a short visit along with the Collegiate Saint Salvy church. The church and cloisters are attached and it is a peaceful interlude from the crowds outside. In the garden are the flowers and unusually, vegetables which was a really pleasant change....More
