Hospital description

The Saint-Jacques University Hospital was built in 1686, and originally housed a religious community before later becoming a hospital. It served as a resting point along the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostella in Spain, from which the hospital’s name was derived. The religious origins of the hospital can still be seen today in the “Chapelle du Refuge” [Chapel of Refuge] which forms an integral part of the hospital’s main building.
