Beaune is my favorite town in Burgundy, and right at the heart of this medieval village is the imposing Hôtel Dieu. Founded in the 15th century as a hospice to care for the poor and sick, the Hôtel Dieu continued to function as the town hospital until 1971. Today it has been beautifully restored to its 15th century condition and is the number one attraction in Beaune (aside from the wine).
