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...

This church, most known for its cloister and its wonderful capitals, needs no review from me. It is difficult to say more about it than can be found in any good guide book, but it is, of course, something any visitor to Arles must see. The front of the church is also worth a good, long look.

The church was quite nice. Most amazing where the cloisters. Kind of hidden and difficult to find if you don't know where you're going. Well worth the effort. I've seen better cloisters but these are still amazing.

Very interesting architecture and a beautiful interior. On the main town square. Public bathrooms across the square from the church was a added bonus. Felt it was a worthwhile use of our time while visiting Arles.

The cloister is well worth a visit - especially look for the well where the many years of hard work lifting buckets of water can be seen where the ropes cut channels into the stone. Also the water collection system on the roof is noteworthy. Unfortunately there are no signs or commentary telling you anything about its history,
