DESCRIPTION

To the north of the Cathedral, standing above the Tarn, is the Albi Palais de la Berbie (from a Romance word bisbia, "bishop"), another fortress-like structure built in the 13th and 14th centuries. Originally the archbishop's palace, it now houses the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum.

These restored gardens feature some elaborate scrollwork of dwarf box and summer bedding plants.

The Toulouse-Lautrec Museum, installed in the Palais de la Berbie in Albi in 1923, contains numerous pictures, drawings and lithographs by the Albi-born painter, together with over 400 works by his contemporaries (including Degas, Rodin, Matisse, Maillol and Rouault).From the second Lautrec Room and from the terraced gardens of the palace there are fine views of the Tarn valley and the old bridge spanning the river.The museum also displays antiquities and applied arts.
