Les Antiques

(Monumental heritage)

Route des Baux de Provence D5 13210 Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

These two monuments, commonly known as "Les Antiques", marked the entry to the town of Glanum.

The Mausoleum, or Cenotaph of the Julii
This funerary monument dates from 30-20 BCE. Particularly well preserved, it is famous for its unusual structure, unique in Roman architecture: from a rectangular pedestal with four magnificently carved faces rises a triumphal arch, on top of which stands a small round temple housing the effigies of two members of the Gallo-Roman family of the Julii, to whom this outstanding monument is dedicated.
The Triumphal Arch
Dating from about 20 CE, it has lost the pediment which once crowned the arch. It is decorated with beautiful reliefs illustrating Caesar’s conquest of the Gauls, with fruit and foliage, symbolising plenty, carved under the arch.
