You can tell that the church is very old. The paintings are extremely dark and can not be made out what is on them. The ceiling and walls also are very dark and well worn.

Beautiful church in the center of Aix-en-Provence and on the sight of a previous hospital. The Cathedrale Saint Sauveur is an amazing sight. Must see.

It was quiet during summer but the university parish is filled with young people during the year with their 7PM Sunday Night Mass & social. The building has it own merit to look around, though very dark.

Simple magnificence, tranquility and peace from the outside. The paintings could do with some cleaning and restoration but the space is deceptive compared with the street facade. Light a candle and spend some time with your thoughts and prayers.
