It was very interesting visiting the place where Van Gogh stayed for months, after he’d cut his ear. We can visit his room and read some medical reports about him, including his diagnosis. Worth the visit!!

We stayed in Arles and took a bus out to St. Remy, then walked to St. Paul de Mausole -- chasing Van Gogh locations, naturally -- this is a really lovely way to spend a day. Very soothing location, interesting and quite emotional to "feel"...More

This is still an active hospital for treating mental illness. Well maintained. Very good presentation of why Van Gogh was there, what his life was like in the institution, and how mental health issues have been dealt with over the last couple hundred years.

Walk to this still used psychiatric hospital (new wing) where Van Gogh spent time after cutting his ear in Arles, not far away. You walk to the building passing displays of several of his paintings, and through beautiful gardens to the building where his room...More

It is easy to miss this place on the road but it is well worth a visit. A self guided tour through this former monastery that has a quiet stillness about it but a moving insight into the last year of Van Gogh’s life where...More

Loved this place. You’re not allowed to call it a loony bin these days; instead we visited the psychiatric hospital, famous for treating Vincent Van Gogh. I think he had already sliced his ear off by the time he was here. It’s a pleasant 20...More
