Hospice des Indigents

Another place doomed to oblivion.
But what can I say more...
Very pleasant place ? I have seen worse...
Lots of details from the past ? Not really...
Big place perhaps ? No !
Surprising ? Well, that's it.

This is a building where an entire floor is reserved for those measuring less than 1.50m. The architect (who probably had alcohol problems) had the great idea to fuck metal rods to the roof-frame, tie rods which pass through the rooms and corridors of that floor. Beware of nasal fractures !
Half shaved, hospice is relatively good condition but so empty and cold. Note that for a hospice, it is not surprising...

Fortunately, the beautiful chapel is there.
In grandeur and luxury almost disproportionate to the murky corridors of the hospital, the sanctuary itself is worth a visit.

All this is not of the first freshness...

The refinement of the chapel contrasts with the austerity of the rest of the building.
