16 reviews of Albi Cathedral

Exterior of the Cathedral of Santa Cecilia

This Jubé dates from the early sixteenth century. Originally the pulpit from where the priest read the sacred texts always beginning with the words "Jube Domine Benedicere" translated as "Lord deign to bless". The repetition of this phrase gave this place the name of the first word. It is carved in soft limestone which with the passage of time has been hardened. Initially there were horcinas containing 75 statues which unfortunately were destroyed during the revolution. It has three side doors giving access to the aisle, the center one leading directly to the choir.

Remarkable

When you get to the center of Albi, you will be surprised to see how big the cathedral of Santa Cecilia is. This entirely brick cathedral has a single nave with chapels between the buttresses along its perimeter. It's seemingly simple, but remarkable for its grandeur.
