We visited the Cathedrale de la Major on a quiet Friday afternoon. It wasn’t too busy and easy to wander around for half an hour or so. All the signs and information about the church were in French but that didn’t stop us admiring the beautiful and detail inside.

This cathedral dominates the area near the end of the cruise liner terminals. Absolutely massive inside and well worth waiting in Marseille an extra day for it to open up after undergoing maintenance.

Big cathedral that is quite new (100 years approximately). It’s interesting but we prefer the older medieval cathedrals..

Known as the pyjama church, it certainly makes you feel warm inside as you explore all this place has to offer. If I was a religious man, I would definitely pray here!
