The Palais de la Berbie, dating from the 13th century, was the fortified residence of the Archbishops. Today it houses the Toulouse-Lautrec museum containing the world’s most important collection of the 19th-century artist’s paintings and works, more than 1,000 in all. It follows the life of the aristocratic Albigeois from his teenage years to those famous drawings (563 of them), 219 oil paintings, 183 lithographs, and 31 posters depicting the raffish demi-monde of turn-of-the-century Paris. For an art buff or Toulouse-Lautrec fan, this is a must-see museum. The top floor displays work by other French artists: Degas, Bonnard, Matisse, Utrillo, and Rouault. Another gallery focuses on Albi’s Episcopal city.
