The walk is about one and a quarter kilometres long and by strategically placing explanations and picture that Van Gogh painted, the walk is entertaining and shortened by this build up about Van Gogh. It is an easy walk although the last part is not...More

The links between Van Gogh and the various signposts seem a little tenuous, and not all that relevant. If you are tired of sitting in town-centre cafés, drinking and people-watching, you may - like us try this walking tour. It's ok as a diversion -...More

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’.

We didn't plan on going this walk, but we decided to explore our home base when we learned the bull festival was going on and didn't want to worry about parking our car later. We're so glad we did. I read reviews of people complaining...More

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