Le Palais Idéal Du Facteur Cheval

Described by an English newspaper as 'one of the great follies of France' this 'garden palace' was built by a local postman, Ferdinand Cheval, using stones on horseback during his postrounds. It attracted the attention of artist André Breton and remains popular. He often worked by moonlight and the palace has a dreamlike quality.
