As we were returning from Sainte-Baume Holy Cave we saw the basilica in the city so we decided to turn around an visit it. Smart choice. Inside there was a pipe concert, Michel Tissier was playing. The resonance was great. From outside the basilica shows a mixture of old styles as the sections were constructed in different years. Inside the are more chapels beautiful designed, still keeping old paints and religious objects. You can go close to the altar and admire the beautiful old furniture where the chorus was singing. On a side you can visit the crypt where the relics of Mary Magdalene are kept. We had no idea there are kept in France before visiting this place. There is no entrance fee to visit the basilica, but you can buy a candle and so contribute to the restoration work that is still done. You can leave you car nearby (some 100 m) in a free parking place (follow the signs, it's easy). Next to the basilica is the town hall (beautiful architecture, also in restoration). We had no time to visit more of the city because of the rain but we didn't regret the stop.
