“The top of Marseille!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Liked - on the route of the tourist train so easy to get to. Fabulous church, very ornate. Great views over Marseille too.

Disliked - the obiquitous Marseille beggars. Also, as it's so high up, quite windy and bitterly cold.

“Magnificent View”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Any visit to Marseille must include a visit to this landmark even if churches are not your thing. The view from outside the church is spectacular, providing a panoramic view of the entire city, the coast line and the region all the way to Aix-en- Provence.

“Well worth visiting and great views”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

It's a steep walk up to Notre Dame de la Garde but you will be well rewarded by the stunning views over the city and the bay. The interior of the church is very impressive too.
