Big plaza with dancing fountains (which transform every minute and create a playground for children in sunny day) and colourful carousel. Little off from historic center (10 minutes walk), located more in residential area than touristic with many restaurants and cafes around the plaza. And...More

We had a stroll around this large square that has nice gardens and water features. There are lots of bars around the perimeter and the locals just hang out here in the shaded areas.

This square is right outside our hotel. There are lots of eateries around the place but not the place for foodies. The fountain is the only attraction in the square.

Visited on a wet and blustery Sunday morning. The carpark is adjacent to the square. Luckily for us there was a Boulangerie close by for a cup of delicious coffee.

This is one of the main squares in Albi, and features a big fountain. There are cafes and coffee shops on the edge, and streets from here go into the Cathedral area and old part of town. There is also parking underneath.

Just a place with people restaurants, cinemas, theater, nothing else. If you visit Albi you will go through this place. It is the heart of the city

This is a great place to relax and people-watch, with its water features and numerous bars and restauarants. Live music too, on some evenings,

We passed through the park but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it, there are many more interesting places to visit. There are large areas of concrete, interrupted by the fountain and it is away form the main areas of tourist interest.
