Arles

99 recensioner

Lovingly nicknamed the ‘soul of Provence’, the historic city of Arles is a key stop on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrim route and the gateway to the Camargue Natural Park, set on the banks of the Rhone River. One of the oldest cities in south France, founded by Greeks in 6th-century BC and later established as the Roman capital of Gaul, Britain and Spain, Arles boasts a number of archeological points of interest. A 20,000-seat Roman amphitheatre, Les Arenes, sits at the heart of the medieval center and a cluster of fascinating Roman ruins, including a 12,000-seat theater, are dotted around the UNESCO-World Heritage listed city.

The city’s popularity with artists was cemented by the work of one-time resident Van Gogh, whose enchantment with the region led to many of his most famous works being painted within the year he spent there.
