France: Albi Town
Another awesome destination we headed to was to Albi Town. It is a small town located about 1 1/2 hours from Toulouse. It is known for its massive cathedral and the old buildings over there. Honestly it is quite a boring destination for normal people, but if you're into architecture and old churches, yeah this will be 1 of the places you should add to the list
One of the major historical events that happened in the town is there was a Crusade done by the Catholic Church to eliminate Catharism in Languedoc. And pretty much after the crusade, They built the Cathedral of Saint Cecile and it is the largest brick wall building in the world and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Other than that, lets head to the pictures of Albi

And there's another section at the back of the Cathedral which used to be the place where they used to worship in the olden times. Here are the pictures:
