  • We arrive at Arles from Marseille in a day, we have to repeat the photos when comes the Sun. ... The Guide, prepared, he explains for the importance of the city thanks to its glorious past: Greek periplus, hired local features shopping emporium in Roman times, becoming one of the most flourishing cities of Gaul. He was among the highest religious centers of the West Roman and, in fact, one of the capitals of the Empire in the age of Constantine. In medieval times it was the capital of a State, the Kingdom of Arles, which extended throughout much of East-Central and southeastern France and Switzerland today. A testimony of past greatness the amphitheatre, the ancient theatre, the baths of Constantine, the necropolis of Alyscamps the Romanesque cathedral of Saint Trophime, all led to the inscription on Unesco World Heritage site in 1981 and gave the city the title of ville d'Art et d'Histoire (city of art and history). Let the coach rriviamo now in piazza della Repubblica (we are for translations). In the Middle Ages it was a clearing between the Church of Saint-Trophime built between 1100 and 1152 (Trophimus was the first bishop of Arle come from Rome with St. Dionysius) and that of Sant'Anna (1627). In and around stood the Palace of Podestà (built between 1220 and 1235 in Romanesque style), used by the Vicar of the count of Provence after 1251 and flanked by the plan de la Cour, where town meetings were held. The town hall was completed in 1676 which embraced the oldest clock tower in different eras belong the facades of other buildings that flank: from St Anne's Church, rebuilt in 1627 until post office building, now home to public services and associations, which closed the square in 1898 (architects Auguste and Leonard Véran). The obelisk in front of City Hall, raised here in 1676, was placed in the 4th century on the plug of the Roman circus. It is a Roman construction, carved into a stone originating from today's Turkey. Was recovered in 1389, broken into two pieces. In the 19th century it was added the water basin at her feet. During his erection were discovered the remains relating to a Roman Spa.

  • The obelisk Makes it a bit interesting but it's a town hall square not so different from any other. It didn't grab me. 
  • The Place de la République has in itself not so much to offer. There is of course the obelisk that attracts attention and around this place, there are several buildings that are worth visiting, such as the St Tromphine Church and the corresponding monastery, the Town Hall and the old St-Anne's Church for certain exhibitions. What particularly disturbed compared to many other Provençal towns and villages was the lack of atmosphere, beautiful terraces, fountain or what trees. It's more of a stone surface and must get his appreciation of the buildings around it

  • Nice square with lovely sundial on one of the buildings. I'm fan of sundials. ;-)
  • Beautiful. Excellent lighting. Nice peacefully atmosphere
  • The Obélisque d'Arles ("Arles Obelisk") is a 4th-century Roman obelisk, erected in the center of the Place de la République, in front of the town hall of Arles, France.
  • Public square adjacent to city hall. The church of St Trophime has a lovely facade, and the cloister is adjacent. The fountain and obelisque are lovely. There are some decent shops here. There is some activity at night.
  • Adorable Arles, a place to come back to!
