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.

  • Eglise St-Trophime is a lovely church, built in the Romanesque style. It was constructed around 600 or so years ago, but the site has a history going back even further to around the 5th century...
