Berbie Palace

This fortified palace was begun in 1254 or 1265 by Durand de Beaucaire. Bernard de Castanet made it into a fortress, equipped with a massive keep, which can be seen from the river. The fortress was gradually given a less foreboding look (the wall-walk was turned into a pleasant shaded path) and eventually turned into a real palace, which has housed the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum since 1922.
