Our visit was during an organ concert that filled the cathedral with locals and tourists in awe listening to the divine music and enjoying the beautiful decorum. If you visit Aix, don't miss the cathedral!

A cavernous interior, housing fine medieval art, roman ruins and a lovely tranquil cloister - well worth a visit.

Small but impressive facade, situated in the old part of the city. Though quite small, the interior has a lovely organ, and lots of lovely wall paintings.

A church similar to others, but the guided tour of the square court yard was interesting. The tour is 20 minutes, starting on the hour and half hour.

Visited here on a 4 day trip to Aix. There was a funeral on at the time so didn't get to go indoors. But the outside is certainly very impressive and a must see on a trip to the city

Very nice architecture with lots of statues on the front of the church. The art work inside is wonderful too and theres some really well preserved stained glass windows. Quite dark so it's hard to see it in all it's glory.l
