Built on the site of the first-century Roman forum of Aix, the Roman Catholic Paroisse Cathédrale Saint Sauveur Aix-en-Provence is a French national monument. The house of the seat of the Archbishop of Aix, transformations to the church from the 12th century on are reflected in patches of Romanesque, Gothic and Neo-Gothic architecture. Take note of the bell tower, Roman columns, baptistery from a sixth-century Christian church, and the facade's four walnut doors. The doors feature four figures of the major prophets of the Old Testament.

  • 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!
  • Beautiful Cathedral
