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.

Great view. An espiritual experience. I strongly recommend to walk up there instead of taking the bus
Great architecture with awesome layout...Having big space to walk around this...Having small park for kids in front of this...U can view the sea from here...Good for relaxed walk...
I prefer the one in minor, but this one is pretty good too...
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.
Great location , awesome site when coming from the tunnel. Great architecture.
