It is relatively small in size, but contains, massive pillars ornately decorated with plants and animals. Three naves of different styles (Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque), flank the... More

From what seemed like another old church we were really taken with the amazing history if the different phases of this places history and evidence if it scattered throughout the church. Worth the time.

What a beautiful cathedral!!! Simply in awe of the architecture and beauty of this place. At the time of our visit, the outer bell tower was being repaired. a beautiful historic attraction that should be visited if you visit Aix. The interior is absolutely breathtaking.

Its bells ring at seemingly random times and not on the hour or at mass. The organ is beautiful and what a gift if you are there when it is played! The street is fairly busy with lots... More

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.
