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 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.
