This hidden little cloitre is fast passed. It is a green little haven in this brick town, but nothing special. You can walk straight through it between two streets in the block. Good for a 5 min visit. Free entrance.

This small square "garden" planted with herbs and vegetables in the style of a medieval "potager". Looks like an untreated garden and not well-kept. Visiting "this site" took no more than 5 minutes, just walked around. We spent more time to find this place than...More

A delightful tranquil gem in the heart of Albi, with interesting pottager style gardens, well labelled. It was lovely to sit in the archways of the cloister and just rest.

Hidden cloister, which you access from two different pedestrian streets. It's from the 13th Century, with a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic, and only part of the arched gallery is left. There's a peaceful and well cared veggie garden. You'll leave with a feeling of...More
