Pont Van-Gogh (Pont de Langlois), Arles

3.0
#12 of 19 in Sightseeing in Arles
Landmark Tourist Spot
Captured beautifully in a series of oil paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, Pont Van-Gogh (Pont de Langlois) was a drawbridge at Arles in France. It was one among the eleven drawbridges built by a Dutch engineer along the channel from Arles to Port-de-Bouc. That is why is assumed that perhaps it served as van Gogh’s inspiration, as it reminded him of his hometown. The channel is located on the Mediterranean Sea. "Pont de Réginelle”, better known by the keeper's name as "Pont de Langlois" was built to manage the traffic on road and flow in water. A replica of the Langlois Bridge, named Pont Van-Gogh (Pont de Langlois) (Van Gogh bridge), was made to honor the works that Van Gogh made of the bridge. The replica is now owned by the Arles tourist board. Put Pont Van-Gogh (Pont de Langlois) into our Arles vacation generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Arles.
