A panorama from the top of the Cathedral allows us to see a good little piece of Marseille. I love it.
la longueur et la beauté des mosaïques recouvrant le sol sont tout bonnement magnifique, vaut une visite. more »the length and beauty of the mosaics covering the ground are simply magnificent, worth a visit.
The cathedral la major is beautiful inside and out. It has a familiar architecture to the Duomo in Florence, Italy. Entrance inside is free. I also love the mosaic tiles on the floor of the building. You should make a quick stop if you are in the area.
A must go place for those interested in history and the seamen way of life, fears and thoughts, not just the religious side of it. Amazing views of the city and coastal landscapes.
