  • Beautiful monastery and cloisters courtyard. Great to see where Van Gogh stayed and painted. Nice shop which displayed and sold current inpatients artwork. Not that much to see but worth a stroll...

  • My husband and I traveled to Provence to see the landscapes that inspired Van Gogh. As part of our “pilgrimage” we visited St. Paul de Mausole where Van Gogh was living in 1899-90 when he painted...

  • Very worthwhile to visit. Van Gogh walk is overrated. I'd skip esp in this heat. But this monastery/asylum was very much worth it. It's crazy to walk through spaces once occupied by him. He stayed here for a year. There is no original artwork here or at the museum in saint Remy. But visiting the museum before was very helpful in keeping us informed. Also, at the museum they give you a coupon type thing that gives you €3 off at the entrance here. Do it.
  • Great place to visit, not only if you appreciate Van Gogh! Very peaceful and charming backyard. You can visit Van Gogh's room. I just think they should have tried to keep the landscape more similar to what it was by the time he lived there. The view from his room has nothing to do with his gorgeous paintings anymore.
