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.

Lovely old small cloisters . Beautifully planted with access from two streets. Quiet break from busy streets. Well worth the visit.

We were in Toulouse in last Christmas and visited this place. This appeared to me the best appealing Cathedral I had ever seen. We reached here on our Day 5. by train. We took 09-15am train and reached at Albi Ville station at 10 -25am....More

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

In Albi it is easy to be over awed by brutality of the Cathedral and miss this rather more interesting church and the surviving part of its cloister. A cool, peaceful oasis in the bustling town. It is worth walking through the cloister, and turning...More

We visited because the host of our B&B marked it out on the map and it is close to the Cathedral and the museum. It is rather small as cloisters go. Though it is not impressive, it does illicit a feeling of peacefulness.
