Provence: Arles

In September, the Roman Amphitheater in Arles, seen above, is used for bull fighting.

Saint Trophime Cloister was built in the early Middle Ages, XII and XIII centuries. The monks did not go out so collected water from the roof in the cistern above.
The columns of the courtyard have unique carvings; restoration is being done to repair some of the damage

Not everyone goes to the bull fights. Young people gather in the streets for the excitement of the running of the young bulls.
