Hôtel-Dieu : Espace Art & Heritage

A unique venue for exhibitions and new discoveries! The Hôtel-Dieu is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site as part of the Way of St James.

Description

The site once hosted pilgrims and was a hospital for the town's poor. It has now been fully restored after work supervised by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. The Hôtel-Dieu is a major landmark of the upper town and contains an Art and Heritage area with tactile models, sound showers, games for all the senses and projections.
The old hospital pharmacy with its fine wood decoration (18th and 19th centuries) is a listed building.
