A great way to enter the city. Leads you to the Rue de la Cavalerie which will lead you to the center of town. Amazing preservation of the ancient architecture

On seeing Porte de la Cavalerie, you know you’re on the right track for entering the city, when coming from the train station. The gate with two towers marked the boundary of 13th century Arles. The current two towers were rebuilt in 1588 and completed...More

All around the old town of Arles are remnants of the Roman era. This is a grand old gateway arch. I think many people take these for granted, but I enjoy them immensely.
