Beautiful church in a beautiful square

The church is about 900 years-old and very beautiful. The carvings in the entrance and inside the church are something else, too.

If you are into viewing relics of the saints, this is the place to go. At the distant far left, from when you enter the church is a chapel full of holy relics of the saints. You pay a Euro ...(or was it 2E?).... to turn on the light to the chapel, and for five wonderful minutes you get to... More

This church sits is a wonderful square. Typically French it is well worth seeing. Built between the 12th century and the 15th century, The church is an important example of Romanesque architecture, and the sculptures over the portal, particularly the Last Judgement, and the columns in the adjacent cloister, are considered some of the finest examples of Romanesque sculpture.

We came to the square twice for the Christmas shows and the first was amazing and easy to see. The second was difficult because there was no stage and impossible to see anything. We left after about 15 minutes. Arles is a wonderful place to visit at Christmas. No tourists about and very quiet with just locals and great entertainment... More

Interesting and old historic church. Beautiful interior and gives spiritual feelings. For a quiet moment or two on your walking around Arles and seeing this sights this is a good place for some quiet time. So, worth the time to visit and take a quiet moment to reflect on the interesting sights in Arles.

The church has a very nice portal and an ancient interior. Looks to be very old and gives a nice atmosphere. It looks a bit worn down but this is to me not because it is not looked after. The cloister also seems worth a visit although have not gaken time for this.

Not only is the church really interesting and beautiful but the cloister is really amazing; the detail on the capitals is unique. The english guide we bought from the tourist office made the visit even better as it helped with the many biblical references.

While visiting Arles, we stumbled across this church and decided to go in and check it out. While not architecturally overly interesting, it is a lovely smaller church with an imposing entrance and stained glass windows. It attaches through a courtyard to a monastery (entrance fee) which we elected not to visit. I would not go out of your way... More

The Eglise St Trophime has a fascinating entrance! Over the door is Jesus, executing judgment for those passing to the after life. On the left, are the righteous who are going to Heaven; on the right are those going to Hell, walking in chains along a path of fire! There is a small panel depicting Mary after giving birth to...
