Idea #321 – Visiting the Hospices de Beaune in Burgundy
The Hospices of Beaune or Hôtel-Dieu of Beaune consist of a building in Flamboyant Gothic style, established in 1443 by the chancellor of the duke of Burgundy, Nicolas Rolin, and his wife Guigone of Salins. It is famous, so much by its Burgundian traditional architecture and by its roof in varnished tiles, that by prestigious sound vineyard, the production of which is sold by auction to finance the functioning of the Hôtel Dieu. The site remained active to 1960s, and was classified as “Historic Monument” from 1862. We can again see there the polyptych says ” The Last Judgment “, paints by the Flemish artist Rogier van der Weyden in the XVth century.
