After being in Europe for 1 month, one becomes slightly immune to the mangnificent beauty of European churches. Abbaye Saint Victor is different and captivating because of its sheer simplicity. It has remained untouched and unrenovated and in doing so, you can really understand the spiritual connection the worshippers achieved. There are no distractions or ornaments - it's just a... More

This is the most simple beautiful catholic church I have ever walked in. This is a must see. I truly was moved upon leaving here. Make sure to visit the Cryptes too. You will leave just speechless.

I went to Abbaye Saint Victor expecting to be visiting yet another dull and boring church. On arrival I was surprised at how peaceful and quiet it was. Hardly anyone was there. In my head I thought, yeah, because it is a load of a waste of time. I walked in, and opted to visit the site alone (with the... More

We later found out it's the oldest church in Marseille and a bit more information really would benefit this beautiful old building! It's en route from the old port towards the Notre Dame de la Garde or towards the Palais du Pharo (if walking... More
