The 12th century archway outside the church on the Place de la Republique is impressive enough. On walking around the church interior, it can appear quite plain, but if you're a church architecture buff, the church captures the moment that church architecture changed from Norman (in this case Provencal Norman) to gothic, with the use of pointed arches.

The atmosphere was very restrained in this dimly lit church. See the stained glass windows, some geometric in pastel colours, tapestries, relics and reliquaries.

This church is in great condition and has been nicely restored. The cloisters are truly the best part. The church is situated in the middle of a really nice square with shops and restaurants.

A wonderful church (our son was married there last month). Beautiful and old, full of history. The Pope preached there at one time and it was a Cathedral for a long time, although downgraded last century I think. The interior was magnificent, with side apses and many nooks and crannies with relics. In fact it is magnificent and historic. Sadly... More

We went o an evening mass here. It was memorable. The organ music and singing were like concert quality. The interior of the Church is spectacular. So much history here!

Pay the two euro sixty to visit the wonderful cloisters of this church, for me they were the highlight of my visit to Arles. There is a good short film ( with English sub titles) that is worth watching before you walk around.
