Spent quiet hour or so in Church ( next door) and cloisters. Beautiful sculptures square and cells and chapels with art exhibits in season. Nice roof top walk too ( not to scary) . Good value and very interesting.

We just finished a tour of the Amphitheatre with an English guide and were surprised to see him arrive to give us a tour here too. It is advised to have an expert explain the eras and architectural styles of the Cloister.

Beautiful galleries and access to refectory, lovely sculptures in the galleries, a video description that tells the history well, worth the visit.

Old convents ar usually quite imnpressive, this one more than most. The cloisters are just fantastic, so harmonious and neautiful. The chapels and rooms are used for exhibitions during the photo festival and offer a superb frame for the works

The old Cloister area is up by the rooftops and provides gorgeous views. The area is well thought out to collect the rain also.

St-Trophime Cloister and Church are superb. Whilst I’m sure we can never truly comprehend or decipher the motives of the people who constructed such a space, I felt embraced by the atmosphere and quiet. The carvings depicting fantastic creatures and demons, transported me beyond their...More

A nicely restored cloister with rooms off. Rather uninteresting photo exhibition in one of the spaces.

This is a peaceful and beautiful retreat in the heart of the city. Each column represents either an episode of Jesus life or a local legend. It is also part of the city pass, so be sure to include it in your schedule.
