The nice thing about walking is that you see sites along the way leading to another point of interest. We passed by another interesting building, the St. Victor Abbey, on our way to the Cathedral de la Major. And, because we are tourists, any open...More

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

When we managed to find it on foot it was well worth the effort. Thousands of years of history back to 600BC. The crypt is a must to visit for only 2 euro each. Steeped in history and quite thought provoking, al those people who...More

It was hard to believe this Abbaye was from the 5th century. Enjoyed the video display which the attendant will change to your language if you ask. The view into the crypt was worth seeing after viewing the video. No cost to tour the Abbaye...More

I did not have a lot of time when I was in Marseille but can recommend visiting this church. It is the oldest church in Marseille and you can clearly see the different styles when it was built/rebuilt. It is nice and quiet (at least...More
