It was focal point for returning to our hotel. This was truly a walking holiday. We walked around Marseilles everyday for a week. As soon as we came back to the cathedral we knew we were nearly home. Great architecture!

This cathedral is stunning. Although it is under renovation the inside is open and quite stunning. It is quite impressive and historic, a must-see in Marseille.

See map Marseille. Go to the cruise ship port (not the old port) and look at street view. You can walk to Cathédrale La Major and Panier area. You can continue to walk to Fort St Jean and Église Saint-Laurent church (foot... More
