“Stunning”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Walking up the steep hill very well rewarded with amazing views, a very maritime church that my island-dwelling gran would have loved, and some sombre wartime history. Fantastic.

“A must when you are in Marseilles.”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

The view from here is breathtaking. The church itself is quite lovely, paying homage to sailors and pilots with boats and plannes suspended from the celining.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

The most commanding city location I've been to - fantastic view of the area - and the church itself is marvelous. Don't go to Marseilles and miss this even though it takes a bit to get there (we went on the hop-on, hop-off bus, which we also to to the cathedral on the other side of the old port, also well worth a visit).

“Marseille's land mark”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

If you are in Marseille you cant miss a visit at this impressive landmark. A cathedral located on a hill top with impressive sculptures and art. One of the best cathedrals I have ever been. Despite the many people you still feel the holyness of the place.
An addition to this place is the stunning view of ALL Marseille.
Visit it.
Tip: on summer use the bus to get up the hill.
