Create an itinerary including Eglise St-Trophime
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. Make Eglise St-Trophime a part of your Arles vacation plans using our Arles itinerary site.

  • The church was quite normal and average. The building is beautiful but the interior is so dark and not worth visiting.

  • Worth visiting, but I did think the sculptures outside the church were more beautiful than the rather subdued interior.

  • We went to mass twice during Holy Week and the interior is beautiful. It is right off the city center, so a must when you are there.
