Don't expect to find original HTL artwork in this mansion. The guide explains the lineage of Du Bosc and Toulouse Lautrec which resulted in the birth of the artist. A pampered little boy and a man with a strong character, his family home contains a whole host of his familiar objects. Did Henri take tea under the plane tree with his mother? We imagine it ... interesting and moving

A dusty visit where you will discover the family's crockery, its furniture and many other things ... but little to see no highlighting of the man himself ... Mediation side, it is 15 years late.

There is not possibility of free visit. Just guided and just in french. If you don't speak french you will get really bored.

Incredible that this place was maintained by T-Ls elderly aunt to remember him by, very evocative of his life and history, well worth the effort. The tea room had suffered a fire when we were there, hope they get that back up and running soon

Very interesting family home

Fisherman's Bastion

Fisherman's Bastion is a terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style situated on the Buda bank of the Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest, around Matthias Church. It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. Construction of the bastion destabilised the foundations of the neighbouring 13th century Dominican Church which had to be pulled down. Between 1947–48, the son of Frigyes Schulek, János Schulek, conducted the other restoration project after its near destruction during World War II.

From the towers and the terrace a panoramic view exists of Danube, Margaret Island, Pest to the east and the Gellért Hill.

Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 896.

The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths.

A bronze statue of Stephen I of Hungary mounted on a horse, erected in 1906, can be seen between the Bastion and the Matthias Church. The pedestal was made by Alajos Stróbl, based on the plans of Frigyes Schulek, in Neo-Romanesque style, with episodes illustrating the King's life.
