Constructed around the turn of the century. Massive cathedral. Free admission. Worth making the stop but not spectacular from a history perspective. Which they had the original church next door open to tour. That looked fascinating from the outside.
A relatively new church (19th Century) dressed up in a hodge podge of older styles. It is in poor condition for such a “young” structure. Its location on top of what seems to be a shopping center leaves one wondering.
Marseille's impressive cathedral is one of the most important national monuments in all of France and today serves as the seat of the Archbishop of Marseille. The cathedral stands on a site that served as a cult site of the city from the 5th century...More
We learned why Napoleon built this massive cathedral right at the port - to demonstrate to those coming from the North African colonies both the grandeur of France and the fact that it was a Catholic country. Beautiful building, but it seems extravagant to spend...More
Beautiful cathedral which has recently been done up,
Worth the detour to visit inside but even from afar it is worth the view,
Also just a couple of minutes away from underartground, a really cool shop with loads of local goodies.

See map Marseille. Go to the cruise ship port (not the old port) and look at street view. You can walk to Cathédrale La Major and Panier area. You can continue to walk to Fort St Jean and Église Saint-Laurent church (foot bridge across highway from Fort St. Jean). There you can take bus 60 to Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde. Which I would do first because the view of the city is stunning and the church is beautiful inside. Bus 60 winds around the old port and up the hill to the church and stops at the church. Then you take bus 60 from the church back to Fort St. Jean. Sit on the right side going up and the left side going down. You can do it!
