The old bridge of Albi by Kevin

The old bridge of Albi, seen from the banks of the Tarn. Imagined in the 15th century it has been finally built in 16th century and allowed finally to join highly-rated Castelvel.The bridge was itself strengthened, houses were built on its top, and this bridge served as toll. It was first stone-built then brick-built. Today the bridge does not carry any more neither houses nor the main entrance towards the old district.
