How many people today understand what it is to be cloistered: to be shut up in a convent or monastery, to be secluded from the wider world? At the suggestion of a friend, I ducked down a pedestrian street and up some stairs to pop...More

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

Worth diving in from the main street - quite well hidden just a little sign. And watch out for rude people who ask you to move so they can take a picture - when you only just stood there and they have been moving around...More

We stumbled across this whilst mooching around Albi and really liked it. It was very quiet and calm and a source of much-needed shade. We sat under the arches and admired the gardens and could easily imagine it in times gone by.

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.
