Delightful setting, just off the main street, with hundreds of empty sarcophagi and an avenue of trees leading to a semi derelict chapel

To say this is an ancient mausoleum sounds pretty deadening, doesn't it? Well, if you are armed with the relevant background information and if you are lucky enough to meet up with the resident orange tabby cat, you will find it enchanting. It is odd to say, but people where coming from all over Gaul to be buried here. The mystique remains, as you will find if you will just come in,be silent, and feel the place

Ancient cemetery, very evocative of van Gogh and also stunning in centuries of use. This cemetery was used from ancient times through the present, and shows it in quiet, contemplative ambience.

I always wondered what was Les Alyscamps when I saw pictures by this name by Gogh and Gauguin. There were many paintings with this name by Van Gogh and Gauguin. It is old ancient Roman necropolis. It is about 15 minutes from the center of Arles and it is very nice walk. Especially you are interested in van Gogh and Gauguin's paintings, I highly recommend to go this place.

It's a tree lined road, with sarcophagi at both sides of the road. It's a very fascinanting place just a few minutes walk from Arles centre. I just loved it. Arles is a town to rediscover: it's so more Roman than many Italian towns.
