Architectural, Cultural sights in Arles
- Sort by:
Van Gogh's little 'yellow house' on place Lamartine, which he painted in 1888, was wiped out during WWII. But to get a sense of stepping into his bedroom - which he sketched and painted several times (or least the sense of stepping into its brightly coloured canvas likeness, skewed perspective and all), La Chambre de Vincent re-creates a life-size approximation. Opening hours can be erratic.
Museon Arlaten was founded by Nobel Prize-winning poet and dedicated Provençal preservationist Frédéric Mistral. Occupying a 16th-century townhouse, it has displays of traditional Provençal furniture, crafts, costumes, ceramics, wigs, and a model of the mythical people-eating amphibious monster, the Tarasque. Last entry is one hour prior to closing.
