The scaffolding totally obscures the church and spoils every viewpoint of the old town!! It is very difficult to access the square with all the vans and workmen.

Up the stairs from the quay Napoleon, to the plaza in front of the Basilica. A lovely walk and the views remain as you go. Beautiful architecture as all Basilicas normally have. It looks very special when all lit up at night.

This sight is located next to Chapelle des Penitents Blancs. As with Chapelle des Penitents Blancs the building itself is nice but the real treat is the view down onto the port from outside of it.
