  • The cathedral was taken to the heavy maintenance. It is close to the center of the city, but do not bother to visit the outside of the scaffolding structure has closed the exterior of the building

  • A beautiful cathedral in the middle of Aix. We are sorry we missed a concert there so make plans ahead of time to include one.  more »

  • Wonderfully preserved Cathedral built over various eras with different architectural styles on top of a Roman Forum. You can take tours in English and French of the cloister and I highly recommend it. It's also possible to see bits of the excavated forum underneath the church. This church is an excellent place to take a romantic walk or sit and read in peace. The weddings here are beautiful and it's never crowded no matter the time of year.
  • Beautiful old Cathedral in Aix. Worth seeing as part of a trip into the City. Make sure you have your camera.
