Le Castelnau, dignait ?le bourg nouveau?? par opposition au Castleviel, qui constituait le site originel de la ville au d?but du Moyen ?ge. Il s'est d?velopp? aux XIIe et XIIIe si?cles entre la cath?drale Sainte-C?cile, au nord, et la fontaine de Verdusse, au sud.Ce quartier s'est form? avec l'accord des trois purssances qui dominaient la ville: le comte de Toulouse, l'?v?que d'Albi et le vicomte Trencavel. Le trac? r?gulier des rues r?v?le un volont? d'organisation de l'espace, visible dans les rues Saint-Clair et de la Croix blanche, plus droites et plus larges.Aujourd'hui, c'est l'un des quartiers du centre ancien les mieux restaur; le conserve ? la fois de belle demeures traditionnelles albegeoises, tout en offrant des points de vue remarquables sur la cath?drale Sainte-C?cile et la coll?giale Saint-Salvi.

[English]
Castelnau
The Old City of Albi was first known as Castelnau or "new town" in distinction to Castelviel - the original site of the city at the start of the Middle Ages. It developed during the 12th and 13th centuries between the Cathedral of Staine-C?cile to the north and the fountain of Verdusse to the south.With the approval of the city's three ruling forces - the Count of Toulouse, the Bishop of Albi and the Vicount Trecavel - the neighbourhood grew. The regular layout of the streets shows intentional organization of space, an can be seen in the straighter and wider rue Saint-Clair and the rul de la Croix-Blanche.Today, Vieil Alby is one of the best-restored neighbourhoods in the old centre-town, featuring well preserved houses in the traditional Albi style and stunning views of the cathedral of Saint-C?cile and the Saint-Salvi collegial church[Spanish translation not transcribed.]
