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.

This spectacular facade had us gaping as we read a guidebook and searched the sculptures for the things we were reading about. In the middle ages one would have known at a glance all of the stories and warnings the sculpted facade offered. It is an important example of Romanesque architecture, very central, easy to see and a joy to... More

A Lovely church - a haven from the heat and crowds outside. Nice tapestries and carvings. Nice and peaceful place to spend a while.

We stuck our heads in to this church out of curiosity, and it was worth seeing. Soaring ceilings, but the most unusual aspect for me was the number of beautiful tapestries hanging on the walls.

Wonderful medieval carvings inside and out. The portico is especially rich in carvings. A very special place in European history

Others have described this Cathedral vey well so I shall not dwell on its historical significance. It is situated centrally facing the pedestrianised square. We arrived here at the end of a long day's sightseeing. Certainly the carvings outside were very beautiful. However, internally it is very dark and I have seen better cathedrals internally. We didn't notice the cloisters,... More

It's easy to spend all your time admiring the west front, but be sure to visit the romanesque arcades of the cloisters, too. One of the finest of the Alyscamps sarchopaguseses is inside the church, refunctioned as an altar.

... and detailed. I am not Catholic, so am only vaguely aware of all the stories from the Bible. We were fortunate to have a guide in Arles (the FANTASTIC Catherine d'Antuono - see Trip Advisor reviews here: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g187209-d2416131-Reviews-Tour_Designer_in_Provence_Private_Tours-Aix_en_Provence_Bouches_du_Rhone_Provence.html#REVIEWS) She was able to "read" the carvings to us - the detail was amazing - including people going towards the Pearly...
