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

Wonderful experience, It transported us back several hundred years. The interior of the church is really good. Very close to the square which has lots of restaurants.

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.

Wikipedia states that the portal sculptures are some of the finest examples of Romanesque sculpture. The portal -- above the entrance -- is remarkable.
