  • Beautiful and well preserved cloister. Considering the buildings date back to the twelfth century, the detail of the workmanship is astonishing. You can tell a lot of time and effort has gone into the restoration process too. This was my favourite site in Arles - lots to see, and a beautiful sanctuary if you’re lucky enough to visit when it’s not too busy.
  • Visiting in December, the cloister was empty when we toured it. Like most cloisters, this was not particularly large or unique but worthwhile nonetheless. What was especially nice was the ability to see the cloister from the roof. As I mentioned in other Arles site reviews, this is a nice stop in a tour of multiple Arles locales with the LIBERTY pass. The cost, at the time of writing, was 5.5 Euro for this site...but we opted for the 12 Euro FOUR site visit pass where you can visit any of 6 different sites within Arles. If you are in Arles to explore its history, then this is a worthwhile cost; as well as all the other sites being within easy walking distance.
