Wish you were here!
Francis sends greetings from Albi a contender for our Live-Like-a-Local Castle Sojourn Itinerary. Albi’s city center is a UNESCO world heritage site. The city is beautiful: stunning bridges, charming streets, a historic cathedral. The buildings are striking -made with Languedoc style red-bricks which contrast beautifully against the sky on a beautiful sunny day like this one. Apparently the architecture and city planning of Albi are representative of the urban development of the Middle ages. I’m surprised to learn that it is Episcopal!
Francis said he really had a lovely day here but it is far from the area where he’s found castles for our guests to stay. That alone may cause this lovely city to not make our final guest itinerary list.
