Great place to see one civilization stacked upon another. You can look down and see Roman ruins, below the level of the current cathedral. There is statuary and some art, and a very nice ceiling. This is definitely worth a stop.

The baptistery is amazing and beautifully preserved: there are also parallel Romanesque and Gothic naves, allowing you to see the differences between the two styles. An architectural textbook...More

It’s a beautiful cathedral, with many stained-glass windows, painted friezes, and ornate fixtures dating back to the early 1st century for parts of the cathedral through the 15th century for the last. The cathedral is in great condition given its age. There is not admission...More

wonderful building and well worth a visit but why do they need to hide the beautiful carved main doors when the church is open. My wife has seen them but after 8 years living near Aix I have never seen these wonderful doors

Suppositions are that there likely had been a Roman temple dedicated to Apollo, based upon some early finds; it ceased to be in the 8th century. What is certain is that the baptistry (the hole in the ground) does in fact date the the 6th...More
