The inside of the Church of St. Trophime is unusually tall, wspecially for a 12C church but the nave is quite narrow and has four bays. It has heavy pillars and a longitudinal barrel vaulting. The choir was rebuilt in the 15C. There are two two ancient sarcophagi used in the church, one used as a font with two tiers of 14 figures and the other an elaborate Crossing of the Red Sea. There are many Aubusson tapestries on the walls and the treasury contains a great many reliquaries.
