The largest and best fortified brick cathedral in the world, it was built after the Albigensian Crusades on the site of Albi’s ancient cathedral.
It’s now one of the few medieval cathedrals that is still fully decorated in the original polychrome, along with other additions throughout the years.
The medievals liked warm colors that caught the light or interesting carvings, but not bare starkness.
There are also a lot of polychrome wooden statues, also original.
Judith says, “Don’t make me come down there.” (Definitely click again to embiggen.)
I’ve linked to the French Wikipedia article because it is longer and has more pictures. The English version is really short.
