Arles, Selected by the New York Times within 52, for 2018

Arles Parc des Ateliers Fondation Luma

Yesterday, when opening my digital edition of the New York Times, I discovered that they had selected Arles as one of the 52 featured Travel Destinations for 2018.
I was intrigued because there was no further explanation than the rather unexpected picture of an old factory surmounted by a heap of metal.

This is the last creation in France of Frank Gehry.

Here, you have a view of the entire city of Arles. The Roman Amphitheter and the Arena can be see top left.

 

Below you see the main building. It should completed in the second half of 2018.
