Owner description: 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. Open:> 1st June to 30th September: from 9 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.> 1st October to 31st May: from 9 a.m. to noon and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Closed:> Mondays from October to May.> 1st January, 1st May, 1st November, 11th November and 25th December. Admission fees: Adults : 5,50 €; Concessions (18 to 25) = 4 €; Free admission: minors under 18*; Free admission: 18-25 years old* (citizens of one of the 27 countries of the EU or are non-European permanent residents of France) * excluding school groups

“la Cathedrale de Frejus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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.

“Great cathedral and lovely "cloitre"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

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.

“A real gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

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.

“Cool Church!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

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.
