4.4/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web
Eglise St-Trophime is a Romanesque church built in the late 11th and 12th centuries on the site of several earlier churches. On the western portal, the intricately sculpted tympanum depicts St. Trophime, a late second- or early third-century bishop of Arles, holding a spiral staff. Throughout the church, look on the walls and ceiling for the medieval carvings depicting many lesser-known events from the history of Europe, as well as scenes supporting some religious beliefs in the region. You can view bone fragments of Arles' bishops, too. Put Eglise St-Trophime and other Arles attractions into our Arles trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful church full of architectural treasures, the eardrum is superb, not to forget camera to rediscover home.

  • Beautiful church in the Plaza de la Republica, the interior amazing, very Gothic, overwhelming, and very beautiful adjoining chapels

  • Only the beautiful Provençal Romanesque Portal is well worth the visit, together with the adjacent cloister of the 11th century, the latter open only in the presence of volunteer staff and guides.
