Located on the main street in Auvers-sur-Oise, Auberge Ravoux is the French inn where Vincent Van Gogh spent the last 2 1/2 months of his life.  During that time he completed more than 80 paintings and 64 sketches before  he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Auberge Photo #1.  Today the restored Auberge is a restaurant and museum.  Throughout the town of Auvers-sur-Oise, visitors can see reprints of Vincent’s work beside the locations he sat and painted them including the church at Auvers, the mairie, and wheat fields.  

Auberge Photo #2.  The entry to the portion of the Auberge where Vincent lived is around the back of the restaurant.

Auberge Photo #3.  Since Vincent’s room was restored to its original condition and made open to the public in 1993, more than one million people have visited.  Room 5 was the smallest in the Auberge and remains sparsely decorated and relatively untouched from the 1890s when Vincent lived there.  Van Gogh had more than 30 different addresses in his 37 years of life.  The Auberge Ravoux in Auvers-sur-Oise is the only one that can still be visited.
