This architectural complex is a major archaeological site, which bears witness to the city's fortunes.

The antiques

The symbols of Glanum south of Saint Rémy de Provence

To the south of Saint Rémy de Provence, the historical monuments called "Antiques" mark the entrance to the archaeological site of Glanum.

The most famous is undoubtedly the Triumphal Arch of Glanum, a Roman arch similar to those found in the towns of Orange and Carpentras. Although it is currently 8 metres high, some of the upper parts are missing.

On the site you can also admire the Mausoleum of Julius, a funerary monument about 17 metres high.

Built between 30 and 40 BC, it was restored in 2007-2008 and the badly damaged statues were replaced by copies.
