Definitely a great thread Titus-Pullo, congratulations

For those who could be interested, let me put a link to my website on the brick of Toulouse, and especially on its page "hôtels particuliers". Unfortunately it is only in French , but the pictures speak for themselves: http://www.toulouse-brique.com/hotels.html

“French romances occupy a central position in the development of medieval European
literature. Their most popular subject matter by far was the Arthurian legend, which, though it
had its origins elsewhere, was first cast in romance form in France: the Round Table, the
tragic love story of Lancelot and Guinevere, and the notion of the Grail quest were all French
innovations."

Tour Jean-sans-Peur, [1409-1411], (the last vestige of the Hôtel de Bourgogne), Paris :

The Tour Jean-sans-Peur (Tower of John the Fearless) is the only vestige of the residence of Dukes of Burgundy.
The first hôtel was built at the end of the 13th century, adjacent to the wall of King Philippe Auguste.
The construction of the tower took place during the Hundred Years' War and during the Armagnac–Burgundian Civil War (1404–1435).
Jean-sans-Peur, Duke of Burgundy, built this 21 meters tower strengthened to protect his Parisian residence and to display his wealth and power.
The tower contained a meeting room, bed chambers with latrines and the grand stairway of the original residence.

- On the street side :


Interior :

That vaulting is insanely awesome!
Was it made that way in the 15th century?

Yes, the stairway vault has been carved with the construction of the tower.

This represents the intertwined emblems of the family of Jean sans Peur : central pot where the oak branches(emblem of Philip the Bold, father of Jean sans Peur) emerge with climbing hop plant (emblem of Jean sans Peur), joined by hawthorn bush (the emblem of Marguerite de Mâle, mother of Jean sans Peur) emerging from the wall.

This vegetal decoration was originally painted :

Hôtel de Cabre has come a long way. First, it is the oldest house of Marseille (1535).


by Robert Valette (Wikimedia)


The house spared in extemis from the dynamiting of Marseille in 1943:



During the reconstruction in the 1950's the building was threatened again of being torn down, finally it was rotated 90 degrees at its current place.

Another house in Marseille: Maison diamantée, diamonded house because of the boss of the façade. It was built by the end of the 16th century.




The house was saved from ruin in 1914, and clearly the staircase as well.
