Have read the previous reviews and can not support them. Just visited and found the spaces empty and unkept. Aside from some 18 century tapestries in one room the complex is barren. Even the courtyard is just concrete. If you must see to tick off...More

The carvings on the cloister columns here at St. Trophime rival those of Santo Domingo de Silos Abbey in northern Spain (which are the best we have ever seen).
