Although this historic hospital, which dates back to the 1400s, still functions as a retirement home, its primary significance now lies as a tourist attraction.

The building is very impressive indeed and to think it continued in use into the 1980’s is remarkable, that said you have basically said it all. Inside is OK but sorry to say nothing that special, although interesting to see how the hospital was laid...More

A lovely building and surrounded square. Unfortunately we arrived just after a couple of coach party's had so the queue to enter the museum was long and the sun was hot, so we didn't get in to the museum

I'm curious why you referred to the Hotel Dieu as "one man's vision." Wasn't it in reality a woman's vision, carried out by her adoring and powerful husband?
