Lovely Basilique

The Basilique is located high up in the hills. The building is small very beautiful . The vies are amazing. There are a lot of steps but it is worth the effort.

Visitting a great number of Cathedrals in Spain just before coming to Marseille set my expectations too high. This one reminds of the Mezquita in Cordoba because of its res and white marble arches, but im sorry to say that it's completly empty inside, no paintings, nor any decoration, stained windows are mediocre at best. Dont waste your time going... More

This church is well worth a visit, not only for the structure itself but for the views over the city of Marseilles. The basilique is typical of many European churches with it's many paintings, statues, marble and gold. There are many paintings and models of ships. It is always a marvel at how these buildings were erected without the equipment... More

Best way to get to this great Basilique on top of the hill is the little open air train from the Marina. Views are stunning over the entire city and bay, and the Basilique itself a beautiful grand cathedral to view.

A short bus-ride away from the city-centre you'll find this lovely place. The basilica itself is quite small, but the views are amazing, be prepared to climb quite a few stairs to reach the top. There are plenty of viewing points and benches to sit on to catch your breath.

Beautiful Basilique with an amazing view over the city of Marseille and the Mediterranean Sea,. breathtaking. City bus will take you up to the church. The hike down to the port is a few kilometers but easy walking enjoying the view.

Don't miss it. A challenging walk on foot but there are trams that can climb and descend from the peak. The views are to die for. All of Marseille is spread out before you.
