Musée Goya, musée d'art hispanique
The Goya Museum is housed in a part of the old bishopric. If the museum exists since 1840, it is the leg Briguiboul from 1894 to the City which determines his Hispanic vocation.
The Goya Museum is housed in a part of the former bishopric of Castres whose plans were designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, one of the architects of Versailles. If the Museum exists since 1840, it is the Briguiboul legacy of 1894 to the City that determines his Hispanic vocation. Painter and collector, dazzled by the great Spanish masters, Marcel Briguiboul acquires many quality works including those of Goya: the Self-portrait with the glasses, the portrait of Francisco del Mazo and the Assembly of the Philippines. In 1949, a series of prestigious deposits from the Louvre confirm this specialization: the Portrait of Philip IV of Vélazquez, the Virgin with the Rosary of Murillo. Since then, the Musée de Castres has continued to enrich itself and, more particularly, over the last twenty years, making this unique place a reference for appreciating creation in Spain, from Antiquity to the 20th century.
