  • Built between the 12th and 14th centuries, is a rectangular cloister of approximately 28 x 25 metres. On the north side, the oldest, the most representative decorations represent the resurrection and glorification of Saints Trophime and Étienne, patron saints of the city. Wings North and East are in the Romanesque style, the other two in the Gothic style. This cloister has the peculiarity that is 3/4 meters higher than the road surface. This is due to the fact that the ground on which supports was elevated above the ground to the West of the cloister. Recommend a visit.

  • Place interesting and impressive. Very nice and very similar to other cloisters in the area. Even for this (and for the price of entry for single visit) advice to travelers to obtain a tourist card that also includes entry to this site. Beautiful statues and capitals, you can breathe the air of OASIS and solitude inside the town.

  • I visited the first time the cloister of Saint Trophimus in 2010 before its restoration. I had already been blown away in front of this wonder, all these historiated capitals and the general framework. But what a pleasure to rediscover this restored masterpiece, the marquees cleaned their dirt. must see

  • Beautiful and calm place in the middle of the city. Visiting Arles you can buy combined pass for 4 monumenta and 2 museums for just 9 € (ask for a discount if you stay in a hotel or Airbnb in Arles). We visited closter, arena and Roman theatre which would be about 20 € buying tickets separately. With the pass you have also discount in other monuments or castles around Arles.
  • Lovely cloister.
  • A world heritage site since 1981. With all the mereixement. A wonder of the medieval sculpture. I recommend to observe in detail each of the capitals, full of surprises and fascinating details. There are capitals of the Romanesque era but there is also a Gothic capitals that represent some impressive monsters.
