Beaune is our last stop before Paris.  The highlight in Beaune was a visit to Hotel-Dieu (Des Hospices Civils De Beaune).  This hospital, "a place for the poor", was established in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, chancellor to the Duke of Burgundy and his wife, Guigone de Salins. The original principles were charity and cure.  The bishops who built the Pope Palace ought be ashamed of themselves!
