Basilique Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde


Often called "the Good Mother," Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde is located on a limestone peak of 149 meters and 13 meters surhausser through the walls and foundations of an old fort.

Built in 1864 by architect Henry Espérandieu replaces the basilica a chapel of the same name, built in the thirteenth century.

Between 2001 and 2008, a long restoration has allowed the church to regain its former glory.

Hill Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde is a World Heritage Site since 1917. Since the Middle Ages, Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde is considered the guardian of sailors and fishermen.
