A really intricately-designed cathedral in a remarkable setting overlooking the Mediterranean and the Port of Marseille. It’s unique Romanesque-Byzantine design makes it stand out among the surrounding buildings in the nearby Panier district and in general; the cathedral is a listed National Monument of France.
Just across from the Old Port area this is well worth a small diversion to visit. With it's striking exterior and colourful interior it is a place of quiet reflection and solace from the outside world. With free entry this was not at all busy...More
By any standards this cathedral is well worth a visit. In our case we had visited the Basilica earlier in the day so we had already seen a most beautiful church and by comparison the cathedral wasn't in the same class. Nevertheless it should be...More
A huge cathedral built in the 19th century, which is actually more interesting from the outside than the inside. Closed on tuesdays, open all other days. Nice terracez with view on new harbour close by

See map Marseille. Go to the cruise ship port (not the old port) and look at street view. You can walk to Cathédrale La Major and Panier area. You can continue to walk to Fort St Jean and Église Saint-Laurent church (foot bridge across highway from Fort St. Jean). There you can take bus 60 to Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde. Which I would do first because the view of the city is stunning and the church is beautiful inside. Bus 60 winds around the old port and up the hill to the church and stops at the church. Then you take bus 60 from the church back to Fort St. Jean. Sit on the right side going up and the left side going down. You can do it!
