L’apothicairerie de l’Hôtel-Dieu-le-Comte

The apothecary of the Hotel Dieu was founded in the eighteenth century in the Hotel Dieu le Comte, monument of the twelfth century. Visitors can get an idea of what was the medicine in the eighteenth century and admire the collections of medicinal boxes and earthenware. Visitors will learn about the pharmacy, which is a big room of 5 feet high, composed entirely of oak paneling, style of Louis XIV.

A very impressive scale rolling stands against the shelves, allowing access to objects at height. In the shelves are exposed more than 300 painted boxes representing one of the most impressive collections in France. Visitors can also see the lab, and discover how were made the remedies under the old regime.
