  • Aix en Provence has a historic centre that turns easily on foot and missed points of interest can not miss the Cathedral and its different styles which are assembled together we found very interesting.

  • Beautiful Cathedral currently in outside work. But the inside is worth a visit. Visit forbidden during services.

  • A nice cathedral with some wonderful large paintings. A bit dark, but that is kind of usual. Got a special little tour into a normally locked side garden. The former Roman columns were quite well preserved. Worth a visit.
  • Excellent guide tour of claustre. Very detailed explanation and could see that she was really motivated. Recommended.
  • Nice cathedral but not especially different from other. Walking distance from city center.
  • Historic but not spectacular. At least that's what I thought this morning. Looked much better tonight when there was a (free) Mozart concert being held there!
  • OK
