Stunning Architecture - like a tardis inside!

This beautiful cathedral is a wonderful sight to behold inside and out. It is huge inside, with fonts and cloisters to explore.

We attended 7PM mass on Sunday evening as the earlier masses conflicted with our sightseeing schedule. 75-100 were in attendance for mass in French. Mass was preceded by vespers. The church is in need of restoration and is located in the Old Town section of Aix and is not accessible by car as the streets are ancient and parking is... More

Stumbled across this cathedral whilst wandering around. The interior is fabulous and particularly relaxing with chants playing over the speakers throughout.

We were on a tour, and our guide took us to the highest hill, and we walked down into town to the main plaza, where all the vendors were set up. Beautiful fountains, lots of nice restaurant, and good Italian pizza and a German beer from a street vendor! The Fountain of Charles de Gaulle anchors the round-about at the... More

We were on a tour and we were taken here. You felt as though you walked back in history. There were many different sections to the church and with many tours there is so much to absorb, but i would definitely visit this Cathedrale that is built among Roman ruins. I found the baptistry to be very interesting and also... More

We have visited Aix many times but had never gone into the cathedral before. Then I read about a famous triptych called Le Buisson Ardent (The Burning Bush) and immediately I wanted to go. It's a large church with a superb stained glass window at the entrance end of the nave. Move towards the altar and the wonderful vaulted roof... More

Just when you think you have seen every type of church, you visit this one. It is very big but is divided into about six rooms. It is not as ornate as other French Catholic Churches and it is difficult to understand the layout. However, things in the church go back to the fourth century. The actual construction began in...

They appear to be doing some renovations to the church so everything was not visible. We enjoyed walking through, however, my husband with allergies had to leave because of the mustiness. It has the potential with some work to be quite beautiful. We didn't like the overly modern alter set up they have chosen it does not suit the setting... More

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!
