Saint-Paul de Mausole
The monastery is best known for the fact that Vincent van Gogh stayed here from May 1889 to May 1890. A masterpiece of Provencal Romanesque art, the 11th -12th Century cloister backs onto the chapel, in pure Romanesque style, with a façade altered in the 18th Century.
It is capped by a square bell tower in the Lombard style. One wing of the pretty Romanesque cloister houses a museum which retraces the period when Vincent van Gogh was committed to Saint-Paul.
You can visit the emotionally-charged reconstruction of the artist’s room. In the Van Gogh Field, you can admire more than 20 large-scale reproductions of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings on the site where they were created. This place, which strikes the visitor with a feeling of great serenity, still functions as a psychiatric hospital today.
