Les Alyscamps Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
From the Gallo-Roman period up to the end of the Middle Ages, the Alyscamps ("Champs-Élysées") was one of the most prestigious necropolises in the West. Its heyday came when the necropolis was Christianised, with relics from St Trophimus and the tomb of St Genesius. The transfer of the relics of St Trophimus to the cathedral in 1152 led to the demise of the necropolis. It was carved up by the lords, who offered their distinguished patrons sculpted sarcophagi, while monks took tombstones to build convents.

    Pros

    Nombres de sarcophages et de scepultures importants. Ballade plaisante dans un parc bien paysagé. Descendre dans la crypte avec les enfants et prendre le passage secret à gauche.

    Cons

    Visite un peu courte, 30 minutes maxi.
