Sweetest Psych Ward I’ve Ever Seen…

Stumbled upon this in my internet travels this morning.  Le Monastère Saint-Paul-de-Mausole at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. The monastery was built in the 11th C, but was sold after the French Revolution & became a psychiatric hospital. Vincent Van Gogh was treated here (1889-1890).  In spite of Van Gogh’s mental instability, he produced over 140 paintings during his stay at the hospital.   Saint Paul de Mausole remains today a psychiatric health institution.

Can’t say I’d mind being committed there.   If you’d like to too, more here.  😉
