ARLES 50 km
Door open to the Camargue, Arles was already a place of Celte habitat, then Greek, and became Roman by the grace of César in 45 av.JC
Like for Nimes is not necessary to present his monuments (arenas, old roman theatre, Sainte Trophine parvis, catacombs…)
Arles knew, after the Roman period a second golden age in XIIème century, the splendour of the medieval buildings attests that.
Today Arles became a high international place of the photography, but also for dance.
(The "arlesienne" of back is a work of the painter Danielle Raspini from Arles )
