Chateau du Bosc, Occitanie
Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Explore the 15th-century Chateau du Bosc, the family home of painter Toulouse Lautrec. Once a feudal fortress, the structure was renovated in the 19th century. The artist spent a large amount of time in these halls after a crippling accident at the age of 15 in which he broke both of his legs. Despite the handicap, Lautrec's elders encouraged him to develop his skills, and so the young man started drawing. Today, you can take a guided tour of the reception rooms and bedroom, as well as a family museum with a wall of Lautrec's works.
