France is chock-full of palaces, but there’s one – Palais Ideal – that stands apart that beats all others being a thing of beauty and commitment. Ferdinand Cheval, a French postman without formal architectural or creative education, invested 33 many years building this extraordinary framework by cementing together oddly-shaped stones which he discovered along his post course.


Building in the palace began in 1879 and was finished in 1912. After stumbling on a unusual rock that inspired their dream, Cheval started to walk his 18-mile mail course having a wheelbarrow so he could collect other strange stones and pebbles.

The Palace Best is found in Hauterives, a city in southeastern France. Its open practically all 12 months for visits, and frequently is a venue for extraordinary concerts and art events. If you’re traveling to France, but this amazing work of DIY outsider art on your own number!
