Van Gogh Saint Rémy de ProvenceThe village of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence is located within the lush valleys of the Alpilles mountain range. In the heart of the city remains the ruins of the Roman city, Glanum. A wall, built in the 14th century, protected the classic and picturesque interior, but today acts as an archaic entrance to the ancient remnants of the city.

The city takes great pride in being the birthplace of the physician and prophet, Nostradamus. Visitors can travel down the Rue Nostradamus to find a beautiful fountain of the same name.

For a brief time in Van Gogh’s life, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence was his home. In fact, Van Gogh used the landscape of the village as the inspiration for his much-renowned piece, Starry Night.
