A gorgeously preserved medieval building and a testament to its founders' wishes to aid the poor. The patients were able to spend their last days in comfort they had not previously experienced. A must-see, as is Beaune itself.

A nice place to spend an hour. The audioguide was cleverly done, although it dragged a bit at times. If you're in Beaune, it's a must-do, but I wouldn't necessarily go out of your way for it.

Although of mediaval origins this hospital run by a religious order is in pristine condition. Almost Disney like perfection.Never seen anything quite like it. Was a functioning hospital until the 1990's. Contains some wonderful paintings, well displayed pharmacy, kitchen, wards etc. Quite busy but well worth visit. Outside will not prepare you for inside but external architecture stunning as well.

Very much worth the visit to this historical building. Seen the story on Rick Steve's visits to the region and really grabbed our interest to visit.

This old hospital that has been operating until late 60ties is worth your time. We had an excellent guide (Kim) and she shared the history behind this magnificent well kept piece of history.

It's amazing to recall that the Hospices de Beaune had its first patients in the 1450's and that it remained a hospital right until the 1970's. The whole complex is beautifully restored, starting with the roof and its tiles in several colours. It's worth to take one of the audio guides (included in the entrance fee) to hear about the...

Founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin to care for the ailing poor, this is a walk through history. The buildings are inspiring, but the message moreso. Take the headset included in the entry and listen to the story.

Fascinated by the roof tiles & the history of the place. The place is well maintained. Will be good if the information on the signages are available in English too.
