  • The church combines work from several centuries. The west front with the gothic porch, the baptistery and the main altar are the highlights of the church building. But the really fascinating part is the cloister with its capitals representing biblical scenes, reliefs and sculptures on the corner columns.
  • I've never seen a stereo organ before. Unfortunately also not heard. But it has to be a unique experience.
  • Nice church to visit, big and shows its different era’s nicely. Good glass in lead.
  • A beautifully kept cathedral in centre ville Aix en Provence. It is still in operation with services. Beautiful stained glass windows provide amazing colors inside the cathedral. A must visit if you are going to Aix en Provence
  • This beautiful French church feels holy from the moment you walk in. This amazing structure captures and preserves its history to share with its guest from the present.
