Abbey Of Saint Victor - Review

After the Notre Dame, this will not feel comfortable – the church has obviously seen great damage. And yet, there is beauty in its wounds – the still standing church is made greater by its resilience to destruction. At first there was a quarry here, followed by a Hellenistic and then Christian burial site. When the Romans murdered Saint Victor on this spot in the 4th century AD, it became the location for a church about a century later in his name. Soon the monastery became a major religious centre. The 16th century saw it decline and its treasures parcelled away god knows where; a tragedy further inflicted by the French Revolution. The Revolution saw the monastery nearly razed and all it’s relics stripped. So what is there left for us to see?

  • The solemnity of the building itself.
  • Sarcophagi, altars and stained glass in the main church.
  • A 14th century carving of Saint Victor.
  • The Black Virgin
  • The intricately decorated crypt.

Mysterious, pained, solemn yet majestic, the church will haunt your thoughts long after you’ve left it.

Abbey Of Saint Victor, Marseille Reviews

Google+
  • It’s not the kind of church with huge paints, it’s even better. Once you enter you feel the historical atmosphere and context. It’s free, have a little store inside and a few video-tour.

  • Really good original late Roman foundations. Former monastic church named after the local saint and martyr Victor of Marseille. Make sure you watch the excellent crypt video which explains the various section of the crypt before you visit below so that you get to see all parts. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

  • If you are into churches check this place out.. we were told there were catacombs here we could visit but no one seemed to know what we were talking about when we arrived.

  • Well worth a visit to this fortified abbey church. Some beautiful stained glass. Check out the crypt as well. Good views from the square in front across the old port

  • Though not as pretty as some of the other churches in town, this was my favorite. The crypt is neat and the design as both fortification and place of worship was neat to see.
