Auvers sur Oise

Auvers sur Oise is a small town north of Paris famous as the last resting place of Vincent Van Gogh. The inn where he lived is still there & you can go up to the dingy little room right at the top where he stayed. All around the area are signs each with a Van Gogh painting. It's truly remarkable to see the real places that he painted. Everything in the town reminds you of Van Gogh; the trees, plants, fields & buildings all seem familiar from his work.

He's buried next to his brother in small, modest graves.
