Monestiès is nestled in a loop of the River Céro 20 kilometres north of Albi ; an old stone bridge spans the river just a stone’s throw from the fortified gate that marks the entrance to the village. Although Saint Jacques’ Chapel no longer welcomes pilgrims on their way to Compostela, it does house some exceptional furniture including a 15C altarpiece comprising 20 multi-coloured statues.
