Eglise St-Trophime, Arles

4.5
#3 of 19 in Sightseeing in Arles
Religious Site Historic Site
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.

  • We especially enjoyed the artwork, including of course the amazing paintings,sculptures, stained glass windows and tapestries. Well worth the visit!!!  more »
  • Part of the UNESCO World Heritage listed structures in Arles. The interior is not that enchanting. But the portal is absolutely fabulous taking into consideration that the sculptures date from the 12t...  more »
  • The facade is its selling point, inside its a little basic. my only criticism is that if you wanted to see the holy relics you had to pay to turn the lights on!  more »

  • Interesting enough to pop into. Some nice stained glass and soaring vaulted ceilings but a little stark as churches go. 11th century so worth a look.
  • Beautiful church both inside and out. It was constructed in a different era than most of the other large churches in the area and consequently has a different feel.
  • Very quiet, contemplative space. Some pretty stained glass and a few tapestries.
  • Lovely front door. Some nice roman alters/sarcophagi.
  • A unique church well worth a visit.
