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.

  • 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.

  • This is an amazing facade with so much woven into the front of the church. Take some time to read what it is about, you might be amazed. The church itself was filled with a ring of chapels around...
