Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / Bouches-du-Rhone / Arles / Espace Van Gogh
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. To visit Espace Van Gogh and other attractions in Arles, use our Arles holiday builder app.

Espace Van Gogh reviews
An open space that was the inspiration for one of van gogh paintings. Is part of the van gogh walk and painting is therefore posted on a placard.

Skip the museum as it really is not worth the entry. Instead come to the grounds of the hospital where Van Gogh was treated after mutilating his ear and painted. Very tranquil space.

beautiful park. people are relaxing there. If you come when the sun is up, you can see why Van Gogh painted this place.
Visited during autumn. Nothing special. Might be beautiful place a different time of the year!
