Le Palais idéal in France - A Postman Ideal Palace

5 years ago

I just saw this "palace" ( i don`t know if i can call it that but its the name it was given to it) that is known as "Le Palais idéal", or in English, "The ideal palace" and it was built by Ferdinand Cheval, a French postman that one day tripped on a stone and was inspired by it to create its palace and so for thirty years he colected stones/rocks on his mail delivery route and built his ideal palace on the spot where he found the first stone.
The story is actually very nice and its strange how a rock shape can inspire someone to build this. He died in 1924 but his ideal palace has been there ever since in Hauterives, France.

I would love to see this in person, especially because I found these type of constructions fascinating and if I ever get to go to that area of France i will make sure to visit it.

<strong>What do you think of the "Le Palais idéal"/"The ideal palace"?
Have you ever visit or would you like to visit it?
