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’.

He did a substantial proportion of his most important work here, often of views through his window where his imagination eliminated the bars. Nothing fancy here, just a walk to his room through the corridors of the old asylum and then around the grounds he...More

If you really want to know more of the art of van Gogh, then go to a library and read about it. This walk has nothing to do with him apart from someone putting bronze disks on the ground and placing plaques with quotes and...More

The thought of visiting the sites Vincent had painted was tempting, and I admit I didn't go all the way because of a threatening thunderstorm. Unfortunately, all the sites near the town have been built up, so they are mostly blank walls rather than wheat...More

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