  • Obligatory passage to Beaune. Very informative with the audioguide included in the price of admission. Also pleased my teen.

  • Beautiful and highly respectable: both by the history of this place, as by the values defended by this institution and [that] the quality of the proposed course. Hats off!

  • It is very informative. You can find many important things and a very good selection of languages for the audioguide, which are not too long and keep you into those times. Inside you can find many things that were used to heal people. It is recommended.
  • A very interesting place, full of history. There are audio guides in several languages with detailed explanations of the life of the sisters and the sick when the hospices were running as well as commentaries on the funding and maintenance history and architectural features of the place. There are plenty of places to eat and park all around in an overall very pretty town.
