Cathédrale Saint-Sauveur d'Aix-en-Provence


Built between the fifth and the eighteenth century on the site of the ancient forum, the Saint-Sauveur Cathedral's facade is composed of elements from different periods.

Inside, three aisles of different styles complement each other: Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque. The Baptistery of Saint-Sauveur Cathederal was built around the sixth century, it is among the oldest in France. The tank is from the Merovingian period, it is surrounded by eight columns of the Roman period from another site and have been reused. Beautiful works of art are preserved in the cathedral, including a triptych by Nicolas Froment, dating from the fifteenth century. Its central panel represents the scene of the Burning Bush. On the two side panels, we see the sponsors of the work: King René of Anjou and his wife Jeanne in prayer.
