A beautiful church in one of the main squares with lots to see. Make sure that you also walk along to the cloisters behind the church via a separate entrance.

This is a surprisingly interesting place to spend time on. Inspect closely as there is much to see and appreciate. It is very central so easy to find. There is also lots going on in the square so the kids were not too bored

Take some time to look at the capitals on the columns in the cloister. They have scenes from the bible (told in order like a graphic novel lol) as well as some pretty fancy mythical creatures. Worth the visit.

Among the many admirable features of this church, the sculptures adorning the entrance are perhaps the most compelling. On the left, the redeemed are heaven bound. On the right, sinners in chains face the unending horrors of hell. I spent a lot of time staring at those sculptures and thinking about the generations of people who passed this way, looked... More

When we saw this church it was at the tail end of a funeral so we only had the chance to just nip and and look see. It is well worth a full visit if you can. We looked at the wonderful stone work at the front of the church and marveled at the intricate stonework. You cannot miss the... More

This is without doubt the most important site to visit when in Arles. The archade and its cloister are part of the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE list. Superb decorations and sculptures recently renovated will take your breath away and will impress you beyond words. Not to be missed since is also in the heart of the old town!

Beautiful Romanesque church. The best bit is the West front, with wonderful, lively carvings. The sculptor was obviously keen on lions, as many of the Biblical scenes depicted there include them (for example there's a wonderfully gloomy Daniel in the lion's den, front and centre, with a couple of lions on either side who look as though they're consoling him...
