Palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval

Musée › Insolite
Avril 1879. Ferdinand Cheval, facteur rural âgé alors de 43 ans, butte sur une pierre si bizarre lors de sa tournée qu’elle réveille un rêve. Véritable autodidacte, il va consacrer 33 ans de sa vie à bâtir seul, un palais de rêve dans son potager, inspiré par la nature, les cartes postales et les premiers magazines illustrés qu’il distribue.

Parcourant chaque jour une trentaine de kilomètres pour ses tournées en pleine campagne, il va ramasser des pierres, aidé de sa fidèle brouette. En solitaire, incompris, il inscrit sur son monument “travail d’un seul homme”. Son palais de rêve est achevé en 1912.
Le Palais Idéal est situé dans une rue piétonne avec cheminement plat et goudronné.
Parking gratuit situé à 150 m.
