Friday 1 August
After lunch we went on a walking tour of Arles. The major themes of the walk were Roman buildings, Medieval buildings and Vincent Van Gogh who lived and painted in Arles for part of 1888 and 1889.
obelisk, dating from Roman times, set upon a seventeenth century fountain is in the centre of the town square.
St Trophime, a building in the Romanesque style dating back to the twelfth century.
However this is not the only major Roman building in the town.
When Vincent Van Gogh was in Arles, the Hotel Dieu was the main hospital and he was admitted there on occasions, including when he cut off the lobe of his ear.
