Eglise St-Trophime, Arles
(4.4/5 based on 500+ 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.
