Also known as the Hospices de Beaune, the Hôtel-Dieu is probably Burgundy’s most emblematic building. With its mosaic roofs of glazed tiles, its dormer windows adorned with gilded weather vanes, its large interior courtyard is a tribute to the Flemish Burgondo style. At the time, the Duchy of Burgundy stretched as far as present-day Belgium and the Netherlands.
Now transformed into a museum, this hospital foundation is an exceptional testimony to late medieval civil architecture.
Among the tours on offer, unusual walks take you to the heart of the aromatic gardens, to the archives or to the sumptuous 15th-century cellars, housing an internationally renowned wine production.
