The Hôtel-Dieu’s collections
A collection of over a hundred objects, furniture and paintings
During an unguided tour, discover the “Nurturing the body and the soul” exhibition. It’s a collection of over a hundred objects, furniture and paintings illustrating themes ranging from the pharmacopoeia in modern times, medicine and its treatments to life in a Hôtel-Dieu in the 17th century.
The baroque chapel
The tour continues with the discovery of the baroque chapel and its two choirs, of the chapter room and the refectory, which come to life through a number of collections of furniture and objects having belonged to the community of the religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph. The complete tour thus illustrates the art of caring for the sick, the conditions in which patients were accommodated and monastic life in this extraordinary 17th century building.
Eventually, discover some medicinal plants in the garden of simples, planted in the square courtyard.
