We visited the cathedral on a sunday. It was so peaceful and stunning. It wasn't busy at all. We got some great pictures inside

Cathedrale de la Major is really big, but it was under the renovation - so no too big impression on us. But worth to visit.

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.

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.

We visited the Cathedral de la Major whilst staying in Marseille for a couple of days. It reminded us of Florence
