The Commandery of Bois Saint-Jean

Brothers hospitallers in the rural world

Built in the 12th Century by Philippe of Alsace for the Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem, the Commandery stayed in the hands of the Order of Malta until the French Revolution. It was several times damaged during the Hundred Years' Wars. Wounded soldiers from the battle of Agincourt were nursed there; some even died and were burried there.

This private estate, of wich outlines have not changed since the Middle Ages, neighbour of the once Parc of the Duke of Burgundy and of the forest of Hesdin, is composed of farm buildings from the 17th and 18th Centuries and is protected by the "Monuments Historiques" of France.
