This simple church is well worth stepping inside and taking in his beauty. Perched on the hill overlooking the old port of Marseille

This church looks like a medieval fort as build in middle age ! The most impressive part is the crypt which was a stone mine during Roman time.... 2000 years of history in one place with a great view over the old harbour

Nice to see a really old building in Marseille and this church is so well built, it could be a fortress. Very few windows, but calm and quiet.

Not the obvious place to go, but was blown away by the age of this building and the crypt beneath it.

Beautiful historic abbey. Perfect for peace & tranquillity. I was also intrigued by stained glass windows that fold open in the side chapel.

Looks like a fort from the outside. Looks nothing too exciting inside apart from a couple of amazing sarcophogi. But enter the crypt and you enter another world! Not cramped like many of the early Christian tombs you find around Rome, for example. This was...More

A nice historical place to visit, the crypt is also something that should be seen once in Marseilles.

No entrance charge but a small one to visit the crypt. Allow hour to hour and a half. Reasonable walk there on one of the suggested walking routes from the harbour. About 45 min.
