France, la cathédrale Sainte-Cécile d'Albi dans le Tarn, sa construction de 1282 à 1390.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Albi Cathedral, built from 1282, is the largest brick cathedral in the world, 113 m long, 35m wide and a bell tower 78 meters high. It surprises the visitor often compared to a real "castle." Monument unparalleled, she asserts her power in a style typical of southwestern France, Southern Gothic. Installed on one of the heights of the city as a base, the Sainte-Cécile d'Albi is the testimony of the Christian faith after the Cathar heresy. Roger.
