Historical sites and monuments
A short hop from the Pont Neuf, a monumental stone doorway hides a masterpiece of the Classical Renaissance, which houses a museum: the Bemberg Foundation.
The sumptuous courtyard of honour is the backdrop for two façades punctuated by antique columns and linked by a stairway tower. Everything matches the level of ambition of the man that commissioned it, Pierre d’Assézat, merchant and Capitoul of Toulouse, who made his fortune from pastel in the XVI Century.
Bequeathed to the city in 1895, it was then home to the academies and learned societies where the Floral Games were created in 1323.
It was this exceptional venue that was selected by the Argentine Georges Bemberg in which to display his collection of art, which you can explore at the foundation that shares his name.
