Place de la Republique with Obelisk and Saint Trophime Church Medieval Marvels, Renaissance gems But Arles isn’t all about the Romans. Fast forward to the 12th century when the city was further embellished with a wealth of Romanesque monuments. If you have time for just one, make it the Church of Saint Trophime with its spectacular carved portal and doubledecker cloister. Invest a handful of euros for the experience of standing on the upper gallery and looking down into the tranquil space. And in the square outside, what else but a Roman obelisk, originally positioned in the Roman Circus. In 1981, UNESCO bestowed World Heritage status on Arles for its abundance of Roman and Romanesque buildings, but turn the clock forward yet again to the 17th century to add fine Renaissance mansions to the architectural mix, testimony to the wealth of their well-to-do owners.
