Situated on the southern bank of the Vieux-Port above the dry dock, this abbey played an important role in development of Christianity in the Mediterranean between the 11th and 18th centuries. In the 14th century, Pope Urbain V oversaw its fortification. The abbey's crypt and catacombs, which contain a number of ancient sarcophagi, are open to visitors, whilst its excellent acoustics make it the perfect venue for the religious and classical music concerts held here on a regular basis. Large crowds attend its special ceremonies for la fête de la Chandeleur (Candlemas) in February.
Loved it! We actually went in by accident because it was raining, but when I got inside, I was enchanced. When I asked the guy how much it cost, he said it was free! So many things I learned from that trip. It was just great!
The rain was terrible, the place was crowded and i tripped cut my leg and ended up in A and E, not a great start to my trip, the abbey it's self was fine if not a little tedious. Lucky it was free, I would not reccomend it although it was free.
I absolutley loved the place. you cant go to france and not visit the Abbey. There was a person that gave me a tour and told me all about it and its history. It was one of the maun things that i did when i was there. I liked the way that it was. ot was made out of stone.
