Fascinating insights into what was going on oil the poor guy's mind when he was in the asylum
Sep 2020
Each painting has a great short explanation which was very interesting. The torture of his depression comes out in every short piece

Unexpected thrill to stand where Van Gogh painted masterpieces
Nov 2019
We were on a small group day tour of Provence and stopped across the road to see the Roman ruins and then had time to wander over to see the Van Gogh walk. It was amazing. As a former art teacher, to stand right there in the olive groves that Van Gogh painted and see the mountains that are in his paintings was awe-inspiring! There are reproductions of his paintings along the way with some interpretation and the beautiful plantings and groves add to the atmosphere. The church is also wonderful to see. We did not have time to see the asylum, wish we had more time here.

Van Gogh Walk, St Remy
Oct 2019
This is a very interesting walk from the centre of St Remy leading to St Paul's Monastry (a beautiful eleventh century monastery converted into a psychiatric clinic) where Van Gogh spent almost a year near the end of his life. He completed over 150 drawings and 143 paintings of his surroundings over all four seasons of the year.
The walk has reproductions of many paintings along with letters he wrote to his brother at the time, many discussing the painting shown. Although not necessarily in the same position as Van Gogh painted the picture you do get a feel of walking and seeing what he did.

Van Gogh -infinity

Van Gogh's Road starts from the center of Saint-Remy and leads to the artist's room at St. Paul's Monastery. There are pictures and excerpts of letters all the way. Going into Van Gogh's room, looking out of his window, seeing the gardens beneath it- is so exciting. The Carrieres des Lumierrs are very close by, where 3D animation of paintings against the backdrop of wonderful music takes us with the magic of his art.

Disappointing and Short on Substance but: it's free!
Sep 2019
The Van Gogh Walk takes you through a series of waypoints that relate to the life and history of van Gogh. While great in principle, the individual points are short on substance. More interesting was the asylum next to the Glanum

Memorable for art enthusiasts
Sep 2019
For those interested in Van Gogh or art, this will be memorable visit. Three paintings were made by Van Gogh in the area and there are plaques with the paintings and the descriptions of Van Gogh on the scenery excerpted from his letters. These plaques are located in the places where the actual trees or scenery can be seen.

I loved being able to see paintings of Van Gogh on plaques in the area where he painted. So cool to see this area in his eyes.

Good exercise and interesting
Jul 2019 • Couples
On a hot summer night, we headed off at 7 pm to do the walk, just as the day was cooling down. The plaques showing places where Van Gogh may have been inspired and samples of his relevant letters, were helpful in imagining his state of mind. At this time of the day the mental hospital however was closed, but we enjoyed the walk.

We also saw the Van Gogh movie at the little art museum in St Remy which provided similar context. Then we went to the new Chaumant Hotel exhibition in Aix-en-Provence which had some of his original paintings on loan from the Guggenheim. In total, a great Van Gogh experience!

No Longer Connects to VanGogh's Work
Jun 2019 • Couples
Due to the tourists trompling people's property for photos, poses and selfies, the City moved several of the monument posts and just placed them along the sidewalk. In some places, buildings have been built where you can no longer see the view or imagine Van Gogh toiling with the creation of his masterpieces. Really too bad that some tourists ruined this for others.
