1. Église Saint-Césaire

Show sight on map

The Saint-Césaire church, in Arles, is today the only parish still consecrated in the Roquette district. It is in fact the former conventual church of the great Augustins, disused and sold as national property during the Revolution, bought and returned to worship under this new term after the Concordat. It is located in the center of the neighborhood, Place Saint Césaire, between the streets of La Roquette in the northwest, Théophile Rives in the southwest and parade in the northeast. It has been registered as a historic monument since March 19, 2014.

2. Pont de Constantin

Show sight on map

From the earliest antiquity, perhaps even before the Roman occupation, a bridge must have connected the city of Arles to the Camargue. It is impossible today to pronounce on the place occupied by this first bridge and on how it was built. It was probably followed by a first Roman bridge, built in the Augustan period or shortly after. But the Roman bridge, of which we still see some remains, dates back to the time of Constantine. It is also called boat bridge.
