Cathedrale De La Major - Review
It’s just a really big, really impressive looking cathedral. The building you see today was built on the remains of a smaller 12th century Romanesque cathedral of which only the choir and a bay of nave remain. Even before that there was a 5th century church on the spot. The current cathedral is Byzantine-Roman in style and it’s the sixth largest cathedral in the world. Upto 3000 people can be seated inside at a time. It’s the seat of the Arch-Diocese of Marseilles.

Cathedrale De La Major, Marseille Reviews
Incredible mosaic tile floors inside a beautiful cathedral (I’ve stopped visiting cathedrals/churches after going to so many, but this one was worth the visit!).
A very cool cathedral that was different from the traditional ones as it was white in colour and had stripes. Cathédrale La Major also had a architectural design that looks somewhat like a mosque. There was also a wedding taking place when I visited it. Do visit this cathedral when you are in Marseille.
Very interesting architecture and worth a visit (religious or not). Close to Le Panier and port. Enjoyable
Great architecture, wonderful cathedral, panoramic view above the old port, families are around, its stairs entrance from behind must be avoided, alot of drunk people, pee on the stairs... it is better to take the stairs from the port side or from the church main front facade.
Impressive cathedral but alas it was impossible to visit inside. Nice stroll from here to Museum of Meditarrean Cultures.
