Interesting to see the old cave and the underground cellar. Very short free tour (3 euro for audio guide). Easy way to spend an hour

In the grounds of the hospital is a wine cellar storing the oldest wine barrel in the world. The visit is free, or you can pay €3 for headphones to enable you to hear more about the history

History in the hospital. Beautiful wine cellar with old 15th century barrels that still contain wine. Some of their white local wines are quite good and for sale. Will go back there this year
