The church at the end is a ruin and there are just two lines of sarcophogi left for most of the length of it. Had a spooky atmosphere and was a quiet not too crowded walk. The Van Gogh connection adds another level of interest...More

Les Alyscamps is nice break away from the hustle bustle of the town. The trees provide some nice shade from the heat of the sun.

These are the remains of the cemetery serving Arles from both Roman and medieval times. It is worth a visit. Just a short walk from the centre of Arles.
