This is the main church in Arles and remains a 'working' one so only open to visitors at some times and when services are not taking place. A large, dark building.

Visited this church on the €15 'all inclusive' Arles pass. Wonderful old church with plenty of decoration. The entry doors are beautiful. Take some time to sit and reflect on the history. I appreciated that most people were respectful and quiet on the day I visited. It adds to the ambience of the space.

Dark inside but if you put $ in a box things will light up. Guess I'm just bored with churches after seeing the gorgeous ones in the big European cities...

This is an attractive Romanesque church with an extensive history. Interesting interior including a very high nave and a spectacular well restored carved exterior entrance

The grandeur of something so very old and the craftsmanship involved in its creation is truly remarkable. We walk in out of the hot sun into this cool and impressive structure. Go for a walk around the outside and see the many adorned chambers full of art, sculpture, stained glass and religion. Really impressive.

The church holds treasures most apt to encourage contemplation of miracles, martyrs and relics - it provided a hugely educational space for me to explain some Catholic ideas to my daughter, by just offering on every step incredible works of art that required some explanation. So. Wonderful. The church is free to visit. Go and enjoy.

The church is about 900 years-old and very beautiful. The carvings in the entrance and inside the church are something else, too.

If you are into viewing relics of the saints, this is the place to go. At the distant far left, from when you enter the church is a chapel full of holy relics of the saints. You pay a Euro ...(or was it 2E?).... to turn on the light to the chapel, and for five wonderful minutes you get to... More
