About

With its 26.5 m high capitular tower, this is a mansion that is certainly not lacking in grandeur!

Built at the beginning of the 16th century by the architect and sculptor Louis Privat, the Hôtel de Bernuy marks Toulouse's entry into Renaissance architecture.

Enriched thanks to the trade of pastel (a plant producing the blue pigment), Jean de Bernuy, of Spanish origin, called upon famous craftsmen to build this residence organized around two interior courtyards. The stair tower, pierced by seven corner windows, is one of the highest in the city and testifies to the social power of the owner of the place and his accession to the Capitoulat.

Since 1567, the Hôtel has housed schools and is currently home to the Pierre de Fermat college and high school. It can only be visited by arrangement with the tourist office.
