Bourg Saint-Salvi
This suburb developed in the 11th-12th centuries around Saint-Salvi collegiate church, expanding outwards from a ring of shop-filled streets called "roda de la plassa" in Occitan, or "the wheel of the square".

The Occitan names for certain streets recall the activities for which they were known: Pelissara (furriers), Cotelaria (cutlery), Sabataria (cobblers), Galinaria (chicken traders), Payrolaria (boilermakers).

The set of housed that surround the church, called the "Canourgue", was once the residence of the Saint-Salvia cannons. The main streets, which lead to Vigan and Place Lap?rouse, are lined with private mansions built during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.Rue Marr, which connects Place de la cath?drale to the Lices (bailey walls), and the Place due Vigan, is an example of 19th century Haussmanisation (rationalised town planning); today it is one of Albi's main commercial thoroughfares.

Near the "wheel of the square" lies another nice place for a stroll, the covered market. Built in 1905 from plans by Andre Michelin, the coloured stalls provide an inviting atmosphere for visitors to discover local specialties.
