Espace Van Gogh, Arles

(3.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
The courtyard of the former Arles hospital, now named Espace Van Gogh, is a cultural and academic center for Vincent van Gogh's works, including several masterpieces. Van Gogh was brought to the hospital in 1888 after he cut off his own ear lobe. The two-story hospital features a central French garden. White chalk gallery arcades are reminiscent of Arabic architecture. Put Espace Van Gogh on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Arles tour planner.
