(XVIe siecle)

Fleuron de la Renaissance albigeoise, cet hôtel fut contruit pour Roger Reynès, marchand enrichi par le commerce du pastel au début XVIe siecle.
À l'intérieur. Une belle cout associe briques et pierres; elle est bordée d'un côté, d'une galerie-loggia à l'italienne et de l'autre, par les bustes de François 1er et de sa seconde épouse, Eléonore d'Autriche.
La tour qui surplombe la cour appartenait à l'orignine à l'hôspital Saint-Jacques, situé à l'emplacement de l'actuelle Préfecture.
Hôtel Reynès
(16th century)
A true gem of the Renaissance, this private mansion was built for Roger Reynès, a merchant prominent in the pastel trade at the beginning of the 16th century.
The beautiful interior courtyard, which combines brick and stonework, is bordered on one side by an Italian-inspired galley loggia, and on the other by busts of Francis I and his second wife, Elenanor of Hapsburg.
The tower which stands over the court originally belonged to Saint-Jacques hospital, today the Prefecture.
