Description

Jean de Bernuy was a wealthy, 16th-century woad merchant, whose fortune was large enough to put up bail for François Ist when he was held prisoner by Charles Quint, and to build one of the most beautiful mansions in Toulouse. He came to a sad end in 1556, when he organized a fight between dogs and a bull, and was gored to death. Following his death, his home was turned into a Jesuit College, and today is home to the Lycée Pierre de Fermat. A visit to the two inner courtyards, with their elegant mixture of Gothic and Renaissance styles is a must. Don't miss the hexagonal tower, which Bernuy wanted to be "as tall as the Prosecutor's tower".
