Les Hospices de Gigondas

The Gigondas hospice. The château and its fortifications were built in the XIIIth century. From the origin, it was dedicated to welcoming the poor and sick. The Saint Calvaire and Saint Sépulcre friary became a pilgrimage destination, famous throughout the Dauphiné region.

In 1984, the town hall saved the abandoned site and redeveloped it. From 1994, this high medieval village expresses itself through a route with monumental works of art by highly respected French and foreign artists. A marvellous fleeting architectural open sky scene managed and renewed every year thanks to the talent of its young curator, Dominique Bonsignori. During the warmer months, it is the setting for wine and musical events. Tel.: 04 90 65 80 76.  www.gigondas-vin.com
