    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.

    Continuation of the visit of the apothicairie of the Hospital St Jacques. We clutch on the visit of this religious building. Sumptuous, beautiful, modest but beautiful nameless building. Statues, sculptures, engravings and frescoes breathtaking. Well hidden nearby the hospital building. Essential.

    This Chapel is well worth a visit, open from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. A lovely lady does a little guided tour for free for each person entering the site. Thank you!  more »

    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).
