Long Description:
Un Hôtel-Dieu est un hôpital de fondation ancienne dans certaines villes, qui recevait les indigents et qui était administré par l'Église.
L’hôtel-Dieu de Paris est le plus ancien hôpital de la capitale. Fondé en 651 par l'évêque parisien Saint Landry, il fut le symbole de la charité et de l'hospitalité.
Modeste à l'origine, il est construit du VIIe au XVIIe siècle sur la rive gauche de l'île de la Cité, au sud du Parvis Notre-Dame - place Jean-Paul-II ; deux bâtiments étaient reliés par le pont au Double. Les constructions actuelles abritant l'hôpital datent du XIXe siècle.
