Museum of the history of medicine
It is medicine combined with the past that is shown here, the evolution of its techniques over the ages: its windows are full of rare pieces, often surprisingly beautiful, which evoke to the visitor frightened by the sight of a needle a medicine closer to sadistic torture than to attentive care.
