L'Hôpital des Anges is a fictional charity hospital in Paris, France. Claire Fraser volunteers there while she and Jamie live in Paris in 1744.


The three-story chateau that houses the convent and the hospital is rumored to have been given to Mother Hildegarde from her father as part of her dowry when she entered the church. Located near the Notre Dame de Paris, the hospital is run by Mother Hildegarde and the nuns of the Couvent des Anges.[1]
