12 kms from cordes:
If you are holidaying in the Tarn region then a visit to Cordes is an absolute must. No matter which direction you come from, the sudden sight of the town built high on top of an isolated knoll, will always take your breath away. If you visit early or late season you may be lucky enough to see why it was renamed in 1993, from Cordes to Cordes-sur-Ciel. Low cloud and mist often shroud the valleys in this area and at this time Cordes appears above the mist and seems to float in the sky, bathed in sunlight.
Cordes is a large and amazingly well preserved bastide with dozens of narrow streets to explore. For the photographer there are photo opportunities at every turn of a corner as gothic archways frame beautiful timber framed buildings
Albi is the department’s capital and lies above the Tarn Valley along the banks of the river Tarn. The town is dominated by an enormous red brick cathedral (Cathédrale Sainte-Cécile d’Albi) and it is from the river Tarn that the reddish clay was taken to build the majority of the town. At night the majestic Cathedral is floodlit creating a dramatic sight. The town is also famed for being the birthplace of the painter Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and the museum there houses many of his works.
