Depicted frequently in the paintings of Vincent van Gogh, Roman necropolis Les Alyscamps lies a short distance outside the walls of Arles. Founded by the Romans and taken over by Christians in the fourth century, this was Arles' main burial ground for nearly 1,500 years. Home to the tombs of martyr St. Genest and Arles' first bishop, this became a coveted resting place. Planning Arles trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • What An Amazing Place The Church Was Stunning Really Was Worth A Visit. But Just Make Sure You Don't Need To Use The Toilets There x
  • Wheelchair access, not unless yuou have a 4wd wheelchair, I would have thought they would take more care of this attraction, all and all very dissapointed but not with the graveyard just the way it is presented.
