The Hôtel d'Assézat in Toulouse, France, is a French Renaissance hôtel particulier (urban palace) of the 16th century which houses the Bemberg Foundation, a major art gallery of the city.

The Hôtel d'Assézat differs from the other Renaissance townhouses in Toulouse not only in size and its exceptional ornementation, but also in its pristine condition, a fact which earns it a mention in every overview of French Renaissance. Today, it is home to the Union des sociétés savantes and the Bemberg Foundation. It is one of the first manifestations of French classicism.

  • Unfortunately when we got there it was closed.Aparently most if the places are closed on Mondays! but the place itself has a strong vibe if you are to think this has been built and still standing in great condition more then 500 years ago. We would have loved to visit the inside. Maybe next time
  • If you need a quiet place to collect your thoughts and view beautiful and creative art, look no further. This museum has three levels of European art was a nice and quiet getaway from the busy roads. My favorite paintings were by Henri Edmund Cross.
