  • I was always amazed by the size and beauty of this gate of the old hospital of Besançon. Since the facades have been redone, everything seems much more majestic. The courtyard, roofs, facades and grids bring to visitors a perfect panorama to make beautiful pictures.

  • Beautiful baroque chapel outside with its dome in color tiles and inside with its dome, painted and carved wood, sculptures and marble organ. Many people pass by during the visit of the city but it is a must to do in Besançon. Open every day from 14:30 to 16:30.

  • Very beautiful tiny 18th century chapel. The round dome (and its beautiful roof) on an oval structure is it seems an architectural feat. The high altar, the pavement (with an astronomical symbol) and the organ are beautiful.

  • Recognizable to its dome covered with glazed tiles, it owes its name to an institution created in 1690 by the marquis de Broissia to collect girls 'morally at risk. " Built by the architect Nicolas Nicole in 1739, it was attached to the hospital in 1802. There are beautiful woodwork of the period Louis XV. The architecture of the edifice of elliptical shape, gradually, from the entablature, the form of a circle, a symbol of perfection and eternity. Cross the street and go to the esplanade of the rights-of-man, a statue of Victor Hugo looking at his watch, and directed by Ousmane Sow (Senegalese artist).
