A lovely cathedral

We didn't see the main church (the knave) as there was a Mass + christening taking place. Will do the full visit next time

It can't all be about the food and wine. This is a very nice church, centrally located, interesting art, altar ambience. Pause and count your blessings.

Well worth a visit. Free to enter, which makes a change. Cloister only available on guided tour. Fantastic organ that I would love to hear.

The huge cathedral has an impressive history and various important works of art. However I felt curiously uninspired by my visit there until I found the Baptistry. It dates from the 6th century and had a special atmosphere. I believe that the cloister is very worthwhile seeing but can only be viewed with a guided tour and that was not... More

This beautiful church meant more to me that Notre Dame or Sagrada Familia. This is a true historic church that deserves the respect of the modern work. To think that this building dates back to the 500 or 600's is amazing. Today we were walking in the true foot steps of history. This is a must see if you are... More

A beautiful cathedral in Aix. Very nice exterior with its wonderful carved doors and impressive tower. The interior is well-known by its famous organ in the choir and also by art works. There is also a cloister as a part of the cathedral complex.

Every capital and every column is unique, an expression of the devotion and skill of the craftsmen who saw their labor as a holy service to God.

The cathedral itself is beautiful, but what I found most fascinating was the organ. This was so unusual in style and design and color, I sat and just stared at it. We were lucky enough to be in the cathedral when the organist was practicing, so wish she had actually played. Definitely well-worth the time to visit the Cathedral, quite... More

Take a respite and visit this French national monument/cathedral. Built on the site of the 1st century Roman forum. Expanded over several different periods and much larger than it appears. You can spend a little or a lot of time here, it will draw you in. Make sure to see Nicolas Froment's beautifully restored Triptych of the Burning Bush (1475).... More
