St. Trophime travelled to Arles and established a Catholic church there originally called St. Stephen's and later changed to St. Trophime. He was a relative of St. Stephen the first Catholic martyr. Given this relationship he had quite a colllection of relics including from St. Stephen, and one of the holy innocents that travelled with him from the Holy Land.... More

The church and particularly the portal reward time invested looking in detail. And do not miss seeing the cloister. There is a small fee but it is so worth it. The columns around the central space each portray a part of the story and the figures are beautifully human. Unusually in my experience we could also access a first floor... More

The old church of St. Trophime built between the 12th century and the 15th century dominates the Place de Republique. It is a short walk from the Arena and is certainly worth a visit, if you have 30 minutes or so. I especially liked the sculptures of the portal and the austere facade of the church. Very peaceful and beautifully... More

Doors are the most interesting part of the church but the cloisters hidden away behind church are the main reason to visit. Very well preserved.

St-Trophine is a 12th century church with wonderful carvings. Check out the cloister and the plaza in quaint Arles.

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 scale... More
