Recommended by the office de tourism This was a real surprise. starting in the centre of the town, you follow the numbered trail with pictures of Vincent Van Gogh's paintings and finishing up at the hospital, where he stayed.

I am a big Van Gogh fan and I was very happy to see exactly where he painted several of his masterpieces, right on this property of the asylum. It is also across the street from the roman ruins, too.

This is a great experience for Van Gogh super-fans. It is easy to follow, the setting is pastoral, crowds low in the fall, easy to manuever, free parking close in. We rented a audio tour, it is maybe worth it, 3 Euros. It's pretty sobering...More

The walk from downtown was interesting but a bit uninspiring because all of the sites were obliterated by modern times. However once you get to the asylum Vincent spent a year in, it all becomes amazing. Words fail, when witnessing where and how Vincent lived...More

The hospital is the focal point here, the walk less informative as many plaques show paintings Van Gogh didn’t actually paint on the spot. But some lovely olive groves which give the vibe and set the scene, and are easily recognised as Van Gogh ’country’.

No cafe on site. A good gift shop. Short walk back into town for cafes and restaurants.
