If you only plan to visit one church in Aix-en-Provence, I know just the one. It’s located on the route of the Roman Road, and it has fragments of an old Roman wall. Step inside an impressive Roman Catholic Cathedral that was built on the site of a 1st century Roman forum.
The impressive structure is the Saint Sauveur Cathedral, also known as the Aix Cathedral. One of its distinguishing characteristics is its contrasting styles of architecture, Romanesque, Gothic and neo-Gothic — you can see it all here. Modern day travelers have grown accustomed to seeing churches and cathedrals like this one, but can you imagine being a person 1,000 years ago walking into a grand cathedral like this one? It would have humbled you, and in fact, it still does.
