Sign up for a tour of the cloister. It is very beautiful and can only be seen with a docent. We also came back for a mass. It was wonderful to hear the organ played.

The historic significance sets this cathedrale on the "must visit" places in Aix but we found it dour. Look for another church to visit on your tour.

Really nice cathedral. We specially liked the paintings/frescoes and the organ (would have been great to be able to see a concert). Nice stop when in Aix en Provence!

Truly beautiful cathedral. Cloisters are wort a tour. Only symmetry in the building is the matching organ lofts. Roman to gothic to baroque elements. Fascinating history, art and artifacts from two millennia. Acoustics are wonderful if you have a chance to see a concert.

Cathedrale St. Sauveur pn Place des Martyrs de la Resistance should be one of the "must see" spot for tourists. The Cathedral itself sits on the Roman Temple of Apollo built on 5th century to form its octagonal batistry. During the lengthy period of construction,...More

From their website: There are usually three masses on Sundays. The first mass takes place by 9:00 am. The second is by 10:30 am and the last is by 7:00 pm.
