Museum of the Hospital of St Roch

A museum since 1966, the old hospital dedicated to St Roch, the patron saint of plague victims, was built in the 12C on piles driven into the River Théols and enlarged between the 15C and 18C. The collections cover archaeology, sculpture (two tree of Jesse sculptures, dating from the late 15C and unique in Europe, public health, fine arts, primitive art and contemporary art. In 2015, the museum received the exceptional donation of Zao Wou-Ki's personal collection, with some 90 works of 20C art.
