Medieval cathedrals are often the best preserved samples of architecture you can find in Provence. The people put their hearts and souls into creating these grand edifices. St. Saveur is not a huge cathedral by some standards, but it soars magnificently and offers a bit of serenity in a busy day. It is dark and cool inside. You can sit... More

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

A nice cathedral with some wonderful large paintings. A bit dark, but that is kind of usual. Got a special little tour into a normally locked side garden. The former Roman columns were quite well preserved. Worth a visit.

I often walk into an open door not knowing what to expect. This place was enchanting. Not busy and plenty of time to wonder at the glorious interior. A huge organ covers two walls and the stained glass is wonderful. Worth taking ten minutes out of your day

A nice place to visit. Typical Gothic church. We actually witnessed a wedding in there at the time of our visit and it was very sweet. It is decorated more lavishly than what it common for such churches. It had a crypt as well as nice alcoves adorned with paintings and sculpture. It is free to visit and would take... More

After seeing so many churches you start to see they really aren't the same. The guide brought us here an spoke about the different styles you see in this church.

Like all Provence churches and cathedrals, nice and simple and not impressive and overwhelming. Should not be avoided if in the neighborhood

It seems to be Early Gothic in the nave area, with heavy stonework and slightly pointed arches; not many windows compared to churches constructed later in the Gothic period. Parts of the structure were obviously constructed earlier during the Romanesque period, with round arches and heavy stones. The entire structure has a feeling of extreme solidity with limited natural light... More
