Cryptoportiques, Arles

(440+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Admire the first-century architecture of Cryptoportiques--three double, parallel passageways that were part of the forum. Fifty piers hold up the tunnel-like structures, which are arranged in a U shape. These once may have been barracks for slaves. Though the name is Roman, markings on the stones indicate that Greeks built these Arles structures. The Chapel of the Jesuit College and the City Hall now reside where the forum used to. Put Cryptoportiques into our Arles vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Arles.
