Impressive and Lovely Romanesque Architecture
Jan 2020
My son and I thoroughly enjoyed this church. The west front is stunning. The sculptures over the church's portal, particularly of the Last Judgment are considered some of the best examples of Romanesque architecture. Here the Apocalypse is seen through the eyes of the gospels of Saint John and Saint Matthew. Built between the 12th and 15th centuries, the interior is also mesmerizing. If in Arles, don't miss this church.

A church
Aug 2019
Eglise St-Trophime is a lovely church, built in the Romanesque style. It was constructed around 600 or so years ago, but the site has a history going back even further to around the 5th century. It's a church worth visiting if you happen to be in the vicinity.

Churches Always a Retreat
Oct 2019
There are, of course, always churches to visit in whatever town you are in in Europe, and this is no different. When you enter, it is quiet and contemplative and this one was a lovely retreat from the world, similar to other churches in the area. There were lots of things to see on the wall, tapestries and statues and beautiful carvings and small chapels on the sides, and it was well worth stopping in to contemplate and retreat.

Stunning romanesque church
Feb 2020
The west front of St Trophime is just beautiful. The tympanum and surrounding structures are rich with depictions of biblical events. It’s sited in the main square and draws your attention due to the richness of the facade. We found out after visiting the church that carved depictions of lions represent sin rather than the evangelist. These will be the Apocalypse carvings.

The tympanum depicts Christ in majesty surrounded by the four evangelists and above the 12 disciples.

Don’t forget to go round the cathedral to the right as you face it for the entrance to the cloister via a courtyard. Don’t miss St Trophime, it’s truly lovely.

in the main plaza

The portal's intricacy is worth the stop alone. It is in the central plaza and a good place for a time out.

Stunning historic church in the centre of Arles
Jun 2019
So much history and classic Romanesque architecture in this beautiful church, it's definitely not to be missed!
I've uploaded a photo of a stained glass window tucked away in one of the darker side rooms - it needed a bit of lightening up but the colours of the glass are exquisite - I haven't been able to find any other picture of this window so hope you like it
