Not the obvious place to go, but was blown away by the age of this building and the crypt beneath it.

Beautiful historic abbey. Perfect for peace & tranquillity. I was also intrigued by stained glass windows that fold open in the side chapel.

Looks like a fort from the outside. Looks nothing too exciting inside apart from a couple of amazing sarcophogi. But enter the crypt and you enter another world! Not cramped like many of the early Christian tombs you find around Rome, for example. This was...More

A nice historical place to visit, the crypt is also something that should be seen once in Marseilles.

Walking up to Notre Dame we saw the Church which is really all that remains of the Abbey and wandered in. It is magnificent- not in opulent gold etc, but in stature. Huge vaulted roof, views down into the foundations and a fantastic crypt. Do...More

No entrance charge but a small one to visit the crypt. Allow hour to hour and a half. Reasonable walk there on one of the suggested walking routes from the harbour. About 45 min.
