This cathedral is a wonderful testament to the history of the city. Parts of this church date back to the 6th century, but most of it was constructed between the 12th and 19th centuries. As a result, you can see a rare blend of styles...More

The cathedral interior was impressive, particularly the organ, but the real surprise was the lovely cloister.

As cathedrals go, St. Sauveur is a bit more dark and less grand inside than many examples throughout Europe. The interior is more impressive than the exterior with the massive pipe organ being a highlight. It is free to enter and is a peaceful (and...More

Share the history of the church and sit on pews long used before your visit. See the rotunda with site of baptism.

The place gets serious bonus points for its high-tech approach with a downloadable walking app for use inside the church as well as stone tablets where you can place your smartphone and get information presented (Rfid, QR or something like that). Very professional and fun!...More

Stopped into this church while mass was going on. No pictures but nice to see a full church with everyone singing. Great lively neighborhood witha lot of market activity.

Going uphill from the Cours Mirabeau, beyond the Place de l’Hôtel de Ville, you’ll find this charming cathedral which remarkably features elements from major architectural styles in France from the eighth century and beyond. As you enter, immediately to your right are the remains of...More

This fantastic cathedral is really a must see in Aix-en-Provence. The original church was built in the 6th century and kept expanding. Now it is a huge and very impressive cathedral with many sections, the oldest being the Baptistery. The carvings on the main gate,...More

We were only here a couple of days but loved the plazas, the historic buildings ( many with sad stories about the German occupation and murdered resistance patriots) and many intriguing shops. Wish we had more time.

Definitely worth a few minutes of your time whilst in the old town area. This church is older and more historic than many you'll come across and it's an interesting mix of styles from very old to more recent. The organs are extraordinary too.
