Long Description:
[FR]
"Première paroisse, par l'importance, du centre-ville, elle regroupait avec l'église Saint-Julien les plus riches familles arlésiennes. Déjà rebâtie une première fois en 1175, elle menaçait ruine lorsque Mgr Gaspard du Laurens, archevêque d'Arles, en ordonna la reconstruction le 29 août 1613. Bien que consacrée en 1628 le jour de la Sainte-Anne, d'où son vocable, elle ne fut réellement terminée que vers 1630. Elle abritait des reliques de cette sainte dans un buste de vermeil et fut confiée aux Oratoriens qui la desservirent jusqu'à la Révolution.
Désaffectée au profit de Saint-Trophime qui, ayant perdu son statut de cathédrale, la remplaça comme paroisse du centre-ville, elle fut rétrocédée, par décret impérial de 1805, à la commune qui y implanta en 1826 un musée lapidaire d'art païen resté en place jusqu'en 1996, c'est-à-dire jusqu'au transfert des collections au Musée Départemental de l'Art Antique. Elle sert depuis de lieu d'expositions temporaires."
