Very Nice cathedral with interessant features such as a second fake Organ, juist to keep the symmetri. Take your time and visit the beautiful cloister; it's an excellent guided tour and without admission fee.

This cathedral is unique in its Romanesque and Gothic architectural mixture. It dates from the 5th century to the 16th century. It should not be missed when in Aix.

A grand building with lots of extensive interest including Roman remains and fine architecture. The cloisters are open morning and afternoon for guided tours - but have a closed lunch period
This is a magnificent cathedral with impressive works of art and superb acoustics. We've attended both services and a concert here and both were beautiful. Located in the old historic district of Aix-en-Provence, it is easy to find and near many good restaurants.
