The Arch of Orange ORANGE

It is one of the biggest and oldest Triumph Arches of the Roman Gaul. It is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Free access all year round.

The Arch of Orange, classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, is an exceptional monument characteristic of Roman architecture in Provence. The arch is composed of three openings, two levels, several coats of arms and an abundance of decorative figures sculpted into the limestone. This arch is one of the oldest and biggest of its kind from the Gallo-Roman period. Located on the Via Agrippa, this Triumphal Arch does not represent any victory in particular but rather symbolises Roman supremacy over land and seas. Dedicated to the glory of its veteran armies and then to Emperor Tiberius, it marked a road of honour, and stood as the border between the world of the dead and the ancient Roman city.

Access to the Arch is free of charge, and guided tours are available for groups when a booking is made with the Tourist Office in Orange.
