“Amazing place with amazing views!!”

Quite a trek in the heat but well worth it for the amazing views. We didn't go inside as we didn't have time but believe it to be worth a look.Spectacular views of Marseille.

“Unbelievable view and building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

This Cathedral sits on top of a hill that overlooks the entire city of Marseille and the coast line. On a clear day you could spend an hour just looking at everything and taking photos.

The Cathedral itself is also a site to see. The outside and the inside are so beautiful it is worth the short trip up the hill.

As a tip, you can drive all the way to the top if you want. Most people park at lower levels and walk some to get to the top.
