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.

This church is a worth visiting. The cloisters were lovely. After a frenetic morning of touring the Roman Ampitheather, and other Roman runis, this realitively quiet, sacred space was just what one needs to recharge the batteries for more wonderful sites and explorations of this great city.

There is major renovation going on now so not everything can be seen. There is a short film worth watching in one of the little rooms. We just happened to stumble upon the room where it was playing. It explains a lot so look for it. It had us going back to some places to see what they referred to... More

Most of the time when you visit a church you look up at the stained glass windows and artwork. In Eglise St. Trophime I suggest you look down at the wonderful stone floors...and imagine the historic footprints before you. The stone floors are my lasting memory of the visit.

Lovely peaceful church with interesting tapestries and stained glass. I first visited it almost 50 years ago and it seems much brighter now. I disliked the lack of info leaflets. Usually these are available in churches for 50 cents.

Interesting church to check out if in Place de la Republique. Found all the relics a little freaky but provides an interesting look at the Catholic religion.

See the church, but do not miss touring the cloister to the right side. This is a well restored cloister with beautiful column-cap sculptures and designs.
