Founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, chancellor of Philippe le Bon, the Hospices de Beaune are a jewel of high gothic architecture and illustrate the strong bond between Burgundy and Flanders. The polychrome roofs and the golden colours of the altar piece of the Last Judgement by Rogier Van der Weyden have made the Hospices famous.

This medieval hospital also hides other treasures: the great "Salle des Pôvres" with its richly sculpted and painted ceiling, the gothic chapel, the kitchen with an automated rotisserie and the pharmacy with its collection of pewter and earthenware.
