Blooming Gem in April May 17, 2013
The ancient city of Glanum, first inhabited in the 7th century BC and becoming a Roman colony in the first century AD, is a surprising gem when the redbuds are in full bloom in April. The star attraction of the site, “Les Antiques”, comprised of one of the best preserved Roman mausoleums and the oldest triumphal arch in France, was studied for centuries while the rest of the site remained largely unexplored. Then 1921 work began to unearth the ancient city ruins (located just outside of St Remy, about 20 kilometers south of Avignon). Today “les Antiques”, situated outside the gates, can be visited free of charge while general admission to the archeological site is 7.50€.
Note that the google map has the wrong location for this site. It should be along D5 about 1 kilometer south of St Remy.
