I’ve never been anywhere as spooky as this place. Pigeons were everywhere, making creepy echoes…

This is Les Alyscamps in Arles, a prominent burial place during the Roman times. Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin painted here together. I’ve always thought Van Gogh painted benches when actually they are sarcophagus. Lots and lots of them.

There was no one around. So  capturing the mood of this abandoned, very eery location was even more spine-chilling. It was a perfect spot for a horror film.

These are Van Gogh’s and Gauguin’s paintings of Les Alyscamps.
