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.

An eclectic mix of styles, from 5th century Romano-Gallic to 16th century. The 5th century baptistery with its Roman pillars, mosaic and 14th century frescoes is amazing. Huge organ which was being played beautifully while we were there. Much less ornate than most Roman Catholic...More

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.
