Our tour group brought us here early in our day's excursion. Not long into the look-see, we felt a compulsion to come back. Shake the group, come and explore ... that was the message we felt. And so we did. Established in about the 1270's...More

If the doors are open, go in. Marvel at the stained glass, the paintings and the architecture. Squint to admire the almost-faded fresco painting close to the entrance. You don’t have to be very observant to see that there are too many spots in need...More

Worth visiting, especially for the remarkable glass-work. It is located just near the Granet Museum, so if you visit the museum do not miss the opportunity to enter this church.

The church is rather understated with paintings in the side chapels. The stained glass was nice - especially the rose window in the back with the Maltese cross in the center.

Every European town has churches and cathedrals but this one is very interesting. Understanding the dates of the various additions starting with an ancient baptismal section makes this one to linger in. The altar elements are surprisingly modern.

An interesting church right next to the Granet Museum. Restoration is underway but you can still log in and explore it

We were astounded to say the least finding this beautiful cathedral purely by accident wandering about Aix en Provence on holiday. It was undergoing restoration but being the Wednesday before Easter a service was in progress when we "popped in". We were fortunate enough to...More
