Site Ancient of Glanum, Just South of St. Rémy, France

From the archives 

 

The triumphal arch was built during the early Roman empire, indicating the entry road to Glanum along the great way of the Alps (the main Italy road)... i left part of the Mausoleum (pictured below) in this image to give you scale to its size.

is the most outstanding and best-preserved mausoleum of the Roman world. The structure is elegant and well-proportioned, standing 18 m high. The podium base is decorated with bas reliefs on all sides, representing battle and hunting scenes. The second level is a four-sided arch decorated with naval scenes including dragons, griffins, tritons and sea-monsters. The top level is a rotunda of narrow Corinthian columns enclosing two statues and capped with a pointed roof.

C'est très beau, j'aime beaucoup.
Je découvre une partie de mon pays à  travers tes yeux Peter car je ne connais pas ce site. Je connais son nom bien sûr mais je ne l'ai pas visité et cet arc de triomphe est vraiment magnifique. Merci pour la découverte et bisous pour vous 3

It is amazing things of this age still survive Peter
A wonderful reminder of the skills of the ancient Romans
Isn't it good that at least parts of these old structures are still there all these centuries later.
I will be happy to return to France with you and your family. Beautiful!

Looks familiar for some reason. It is amazing that in parts of the world, buildings like these are left standing.
