1. Église Saint-Césaire
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
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.
3. Chaland Arles-Rhône 3
Arles Rhône 3 is an ancient Roman boat discovered in 2004, with parts of it only 13 feet (3.96 m) below the surface in the Rhône River of Arles, France. In the 1st century AD, it had been a 102 feet (31.09 m) long river trading vessel. It has been displayed since 2013 at the Musée départemental Arles antique. A marble Neptune was also discovered in the river, and divers recovered many amphorae. The boat’s flat bottom was made of oak planks.
4. Palais de Luppé
The Palais de Luppé is a mansion located at No. 26 Rond-Point des Arènes in Arles. Built in the seventeenth century, it housed a factory before being bought and renovated in the early twentieth century by Jean-Amédée Gibert, on behalf of the buyer, the sculptor Gaston de Luppé (1872-1939). The building, which still belongs to the descendants of Gaston de Luppé since the latter's death, was occupied for 21 years by the Van Gogh Foundation.
5. Site archéologique de la Verrerie de Trinquetaille
The archaeological site of the Trinquetaille glassware in Trinquetaille has been acquired by the town council of Arles in 1978. It has been subject to archaeological excavations in the 1980s, and later since 2013, led by the Archaeology services of the Musée Départemental Arles Antique and the Inrap, along with the contribution of the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, the CNRS, the university and independent researchers.

6. Accueil Théâtre antique d'Arles
The Roman Theatre of Arles is a 1st-century Roman theatre, built during the reign of Caesar Augustus. It is located next to the Arles Amphitheatre in the city of Arles, Provence, France. Along with the other Roman and medieval buildings in Arles, the theatre was listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the Arles, Roman and Romanesque Monuments site for their testimony to the ancient history of the city.
7. Nécropole des Alyscamps
The Alyscamps is a large Roman necropolis, which is a short distance outside the walls of the old town of Arles, France. It was one of the most famous necropolises of the ancient world. The name comes from the Provençal Occitan word Aliscamps, which comes from the Latin Elisii Campi. They were famous in the Middle Ages and are referred to by Ariosto in Orlando Furioso and by Dante in the Inferno.
8. Église Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul
The church of Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul de Mouleyrès, founded in the fifth century in Arles, destroyed and rebuilt in the sixteenth, was initially part of the cemetery of Alyscamps with the chapel of the Genouillade and the church of Saint-Honorat. It was separated first by the drilling of the Craponne canal then, later and more radically, by the gap in the SNCF workshops.

9. Église Sainte-Anne d'Arles
The Church of Sainte-Anne, or more formerly Notre-Dame-la-Principale, was the first parish of Roman Catholic rite in downtown Arles, in France.

11. Chapelle de la Charité
The Chapel of Charity, in Arles, is part of a larger ensemble: the Carmelite convent, which is difficult to identify today because it was transformed in 1928 into a luxury hotel.

Langlois Bridge was a double-beam drawbridge in Arles, France, which was the subject of several paintings by Vincent van Gogh in 1888. Being one of eleven drawbridges built by a Dutch engineer along the channel from Arles to Port-de-Bouc, this bridge might have reminded the artist of his homeland.
