A lot of Cathedrals do not make an impression but this one does. Beautiful stonework, pictures and sculptures.

The Cathedral of Marseille is huge and impressive by its size and position, but that is about all, as it does not contain anything of artistic value. Looking it from far way is more then enough. No need to come closer or even to go inside.

Walked around the Vieux Port and just happened upon this great cathedral. So lovely inside and out. In a great part of the city. It's overlooking the area where cruise ships dock.

Not so world-famous as Notre Dame de la Garde, but definitely gorgeous & breathtaking church that will serve you perfect for taking pictures/making life-lasting memories.

... as spectacular (or as crowded) as ND de la Garde, but all in all a beautiful site and a very interesting visit.
