This church is the landmark of Marseille. It is one of the highest points of Marseille (162 m) and gives you the most breathtaking panorama of the city.

The church itself consists of two chapels, one built in Neo-Romanic style and the other one in Neo-Byzantine style.

At the moment there is a lot of renovating going on, so it is not quite that nice, but the view....... aaaaahhh!

Directions: There is a metro stop called "Notre Dame de la Garde" and the bus #60 goes up there and stops right in front of the church. You can catch that bus at the Old Port.
