Marseille Cathedral

A unique church you shouldn't miss.

The Sainte-Marie-Majeure Cathedral is eye-catching thanks to Léon Vaudoyer's eclectic neo-Romanesque/Byzantine architecture, dating from the mid-19th century, and striated marble façade similar to Notre Dame de la Garde, creating an exotic flavour with its arches and mosaics. In addition, the grandiose dimensions of this cathedral, built on the remains of an older Sainte-Marie-Majeure, bring to mind St. Peter's in Rome. The highlight of the year comes in mid-August when processions and offerings, in traditions influenced by Italian sailors, are conducted in honor of the cathedral's namesake Virgin Mary - spectacular and unforgettable!
