Inscription. Il est mentionné des 1262 dans un faubourg de la ville sur la route de Béziers. Un hôpital est alors un lieu de charité plus que de soins. Celui-ci est aussi un asile sur le chemin de Saint Jacques. Sa présence fut précieuse pendant les crises malariennes des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles, provoquées par la proximeté de l’étang. Le bâtiment actuel a été reconstruit entre 1746 et 1749.

[Translation by Google Translate (with modifications):
The Hospital
It is mentioned in 1262 in a suburb of the city on the road to Béziers. A hospital is a place of more than charity care. It is also a haven on the road to Saint Jacques. Its presence was invaluable during malarial crises of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, caused by proximity to the pond. The current building was rebuilt between 1746 and 1749.]
