  • very beautiful cathedral, easy to combine a visit here as you walk the city center. I recommend it as a necessary stop in your visit to Aix 
  • Is the seat of a bishopric seat of a bishopric's Church you the amithaba Archbishop here. Really finely decorated facades, and would never get bored. So-called Cathedral is not happy with no detail visible with the naked eye. Feel the history and remain part of the Romanesque period to the next.

  • 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
