Visite intéressante mais trop peu de temps pour regarder les œuvres du peintre. Ce que nous avons vu était intéressant mais nous espérions voir un peu plus que 5 pièces du château.

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.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
