Cathedral Saint-Sauveur - Monument in Aix-en-Provence
7.4

Classified historic monument, St. Savior Cathedral Aix-en-Provence is located at the site of a former ancient forum, revealing a fine example of gothic novel mixture. Built in the twelfth century, it reveals outside visitors a Romanesque portal from the twelfth century next to a Roman wall or a beautiful Gothic portal fifteenth surmounted by an octagonal bell tower. Hard not to notice the statues of the facade replaced in the nineteenth century, with the exception of the pier of the Virgin and the Grand Saint Michel which are original.

Inside, admire the mix of genres including the frieze inspired by ancient and Corinthian hats, Gothic nave and modern stained glass or the cloister of the late twelfth century and galleries with carved pillars. Masterpiece of the city of Aix-en-Provence, the triptych of the Burning Bush is considered one of the most famous European paintings of the fifteenth century. By Nicolas Froment made for the Carmelite convent at the request of King René, it is visible on some days in the cathedral.

The Saint-Sauveur cathedral also has the distinction of being the first cathedral in France connected with interactive stones to trace the history of the places.
