Established outside the city walls in 1620, the Capuchin convent housed the monks until 1792. The chapel and cloister are already visible on the original plan.
In 1822, the Hôtel-Dieu was transferred to this former convent. It then welcomed the sick of Saints-Amourain for more than 100 years.
The apothecary, after having occupied two sites in the heart of the city, moved into the former monks' refectory (17th century wing) in 1824. The large vaulted room, decorated with
the large vaulted room, decorated with trompe-l'oeil and woodwork, houses a collection of more than three hundred pots from different periods (16th, 18th and 19th centuries): theriac pots, pillboxes
pillboxes, cannon jars, glass jars. The small room, in which the public was welcomed, contains furniture dating from the first hospital (13th century) and an important collection of pewter
