Dome de l'hôtel Dieu

The history of the Hôtel-Dieu hospital began during the XIIth century. The current building was erected by Jacques-Germain Soufflot (see also the "loge du Change" in Lyon) during the XVIIIth century in a neo-classic style. The 380 meters long buiding lays on the bank of the Rhône river in the center of Lyon.

L'hôtel-Dieu

The dome destroyed in 1944 was rebuild according to the original design. Originally that dome was a chapel used by the sick people.
