Interesting former hospital where Van Gogh stayed following his infamous ear-severing outbursts. The interior courtyard, which features a pleasant flower garden, contrasts nicely with the yellow walls of the buildings themselves. There’s a little more hustle and bustle nowadays, but it’s still cool to look...More
Really this is just a pleasant courtyard. There are beautiful flower beds and a fountain. It is a good place for photo opportunities but not much more than that. As part of a trip to Arles it is worth walking through and is free.
Great place. Lovely garden, peaceful and a real pleasant surprise when you find it. It's amongst the narrow strets. It's a real treat to find such a space. Free entry and good souvineer shop. Very pleasant place to visit
Van Gogh created his famous painting "Le Jardin de l'Hotel de Dieu" at this location. The artist was committed here to the then existing hospital after the infamous episode of cutting off his left earlobe. The complex houses now the town library as well as...More
Since we enjoy Van Gogh's painting so much, and had spend a day at the Orsay the week before, we found this location very interesting. This is the hospital where he retreated after cutting off his ear. The gardens have been preserved to resemble the...More
Easily found place in Arles that gives context to work paintings of Van Gogh. I wish there had been a place to fit snd reflect without having to be in the cafe. Arles in general had zero places to just sit and relax.

Hi.. Sorry, don't know as I saw an address. City doesn't seem to publicize it. But I was able to find it with the map here on TA. Click on this map, at upper right, and expand it out + several times... It's south of the Rue de la Republique, just where the walkway/narrow road jogs to the left, if you are going South... at beginning of Rue du President Wilson. It will be immediately on your right, thru a large doorway. Yellow walls, if memory serves... You might see some post card racks there, nearby.. But I remember no signs, to speak of... (We've been to Rijk's too, and seen his work all over US, and nearly every country in Europe) Good Luck. I loved Arles...! See my other reviews.
