Trip Report Le Palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval

Jump to last reply

Everybody in France has heard of this place, but actually very few people have ever seen it. We just know that the site was created by a gentle eccentric letter carrier with strange visions in his head. It's in the Drôme, more or less between Valence and Grenoble, so I know that there is little chance that many people here will be driving around that area -- you are always driving in the Dordogne or Normandy or Provence if you dare to use French roads.

But I was delighted to finally see the "Ideal Palace" for myself last week and I could not help making a little report about it. Ferdinand Cheval actually influenced a number of major artists in the early 20th century, and he will never be forgotten.

Here is my report: http://tinyurl.com/facteurcheval
