The Hotel Dieu

Hôtel-Dieu, Lyon 1

In the eighteenth century, architect Jacques-Germain Soufflot added a majestic 300-metres-long façade and a 32-metre-high dome to this hospital built in the twelfth century. Since 2010, it has ceased to be a hospital. A rehabilitation project is currently being carried out.
