I really wasn't;t sure about visiting an old graveyard but it turned out to be a diverting hour. My recommendation is to read the description from the tourist guides before going. It all makes much more sense.
A few minutes' walk from the city centre, I probably wouldn't have bothered if it hadn't been free entry with the Arles Avantage pass. A peaceful place to stroll around for half an hour but of limited historical interest compared with other sites in the...More
