The Episcopal buildings of Fréjus comprise the 5th century baptistery, the cathedral, the cloister and the former episcopal palace, which is surrounded by medieval premises. This complex looms at the place of the antique city once founded by Julius Ceasar in 49 BC in the heart of today’s pedestrian town centre. The cloister’s galleries on two levels are covered by a joisting which is decorated with paintings of a bestiary dating from mid-14th century. The richness and the diversity of these designs is unique in Provence.

Not always on the beach

You cannot spend your life on a beach and this little jem is worth a visit. The cathedral is attached but the cloisters are interesting and provide some historic background.

Well worth a detour, this lovely 'cathedral' is a world away from the commercial, hot, fashionable Côte d'Azur. Quiet, cool and steeped in history, in a lovely artistic town. Just beautiful.

Beautiful stain glass windows, lovely detail in the roof of the cloisters, very interesting Roman baptistry where a guide gives an interesting account in French though she did manage the odd English word to convey meaning.

The cathedral is definitely a must when visiting Frejus. Impressive architecture and a beautiful cloister.There are plenty of tourists in the holiday season - try to avoid market days, or pay a visit in the afternoon, when the beaches are filled with sunloving visitors. Buy a Frejus pass - and visit the attractions of Frejus at a much reduced price.

We have visited the old town of Frejus every year for the past 20 years or so but never really studied the Cathedral. This year we paid to do the little walk around the private areas and really enjoyed it.

I just love seeing medieval architecture and when it is this well-preserved it is definitely a bonus. The town of Frejus is warm and friendly as well, especially during the holiday season when we visited.

Had to pay 5 euros each to get in cathedral, so we only looked outside. the old town is worth a visit it is beautiful shops, restaurants, full of character. Very expensive there though!
