  • 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.
  • Such a beautiful experience! The place was almost empty (visited in January). PS: Beaune is a museum in itself. Truly beautiful city.
