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.

  • An old hospital that was turned into a cultural center. The garden of this place was played by Van Gogh in his canvases at the time she was hospitalized at this location. In addition to the beautiful garden, there is a small shop where you can buy souvenirs relating to his works.

  • This was the culmination of our self-guided tour through the sites that inspired many of Van Gogh's paintings. A fun way to explore the city. 
  • Really central, really nice gardens, in the summer it's beautiful! Free wi-fi! Good to know a bit more about Van Gogh. Nice shops.
