  • A must see when visiting Beaune. Visiting a medieval charity hospital and learning its history was a unique experience.

  • Excellent with a good audio tour. Even though there are many visitors, it doesn't get crowded as the rooms are so large.

  • Historical landmark which served as the first ever hospital in the world. The place have a rich history and a nice audio guided tour. I would say this is this is the main attraction in Beaune.
  • Well worth a visit. Amazing architecture and comprehensive exhibits. The audio guide was very interesting. Visited in June, no queues!
