Description: Arles perfectly illustrated the adaptation of an ancient city to medieval European civilization. It encompasses impressive Roman monuments that date back to the 1st century B.C, the earliest of which are the arena, the Roman theatre and the cryptoporticus (subterranean galleries). Arles experienced a second golden age during the 4th century, evidence of which can be seen in the baths of Constantine and the necropolis of Alyscamps. In the 11th and 12th centuries, Arles once more saw itself develop into one of the most beautiful and appealing Mediterranean cities. Saint-Trophime, with its cloister, found inside the city walls, is one of Provence's foremost Romanesque monuments. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
