Absolutely gorgeous building, it has nice sculptures and paintings, little wooden and plaster made models. Very spacious with lot's of beautiful altars. I think the Way of the Cross is beautiful in this Cathedral.

This is a nice cathedral to visit. Nice views of the surrounds while you're there as well. Not really much else to say. I didn't come across a huge amount to do in Marseille so this would be one of the things worth doing.

See map Marseille. Go to the cruise ship port (not the old port) and look at street view. You can walk to Cathédrale La Major and Panier area. You can continue to walk to Fort St Jean and Église Saint-Laurent church (foot... More
