It is quite a beautiful church. A good example of Romanesque art. We love to go and see every single church or cathedral we come across, although we are not religious. We do this purely from an aesthetic point of view. We love great buildings. This cathedral is just as good as so many others. Some people might say "you... More

On my recent trip to the Cote D'azur, a few of our group made a detour to Arles. One of our objectives was to see this incredible edifice. I am so glad I did. As a bit of a cathedral buff I have visited primarily Gothic structures in northern France and across much of England. To me St. Trophime was... More

We were there around and it was closed. Not too impressive from the outsides and no inside to see... Have no clue if it was/is open on other dates/times since there was nothing to tell it.

This tall beautiful needle looks like one of Cleo's needles but isn't. Lovely to look at but is only a pass through sort of thing

Built 11th century - 12th century, this former cathedrals interior is lovely but is upstaged by the carvings of the beautiful portal. Above the portal, the tympanum, depicts Christ in Majesty. The facade shows the Last Judgement, with images of the damned on the right - chained up with flames licking their legs - is scary enough to make you... More

Yet another of the fascinatingly historic "must see" areas to visit in this amazing old city of Arles in Southern France. Spend time to wander through the old church and cloisters. So full of historical importance to the region. This whole town is an absolute "must see". Enjoy - I sure did.

West portal is worth to see which exhibits the Last Judgement. It has relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

The church was included in our pass, so we went inside. The outside has a wonderful door (portal). Spend some time looking at the portal. Also, the steps make a great spot for people watching on the plaza.

Historical area with a number of historical activities and places to see . Not far from many eateries . Would allow at least 2 hours . A gathering place for local youth and others.

This church is really nice. The most beautiful part, to me, though was sitting outside and enjoying the appearance across the square
