The Graves of Arles

By Linda Tancs

Southwest of the center of Arles in southern France is the ancient Roman necropolis, Les Alyscamps.  Later a Christian burial ground, the path lined with numerous sarcophagi was a subject of paintings by Van Gogh and his onetime roommate, Gauguin.  Van Gogh was quite prolific while residing in Arles; the Van Gogh trail is a self-guided walking tour highlighting points of artistic inspiration.
