Once a hospital in the town of the prince-bishops, now a museum with a striking façade.

"In the charming old town of Porrentruy, I enter the small cobbled court of a historic building from the 18th century: the Hôtel-Dieu. Formerly a hospital in the town until 1956, this magnificent late baroque building welcomes me inside its age-old walls. Inside, Iam surprised to find a modestly sized museum full of works of art that remind me of the culture and history of this country. One highlight of the visit is the pharmacy, with an atmosphere that carries me away to a bygone age. Every object is an invitation to discover a long-lost era and teaches me about the history of the place."

François, history enthusiast
