It was hard to believe this Abbaye was from the 5th century. Enjoyed the video display which the attendant will change to your language if you ask. The view into the crypt was worth seeing after viewing the video. No cost to tour the Abbaye...More

Somewhat below Notre Dame de la Garde is the Abbaye St Victor also with a magnificent view on the Harbour. Only the church remains from the monastery. The outside looking like a foreboding fortress and its crypt is worth visiting. At this time a surreal...More

The drive to get there was not hard from Nice and it was so worth it. Simple and absolutely stunning. The Abbeye may be a bit out of the way but it's not to be missed. The view is amazing and so calming.

The church is very simple inside with small bright stained glass. It has a very calming influence. When we were there we saw the sunlight shine through the stained glass windows to the opposite side of the church. Very pretty.

A must see and best with a tour guide to appreciate the finer details and history. Stunning I. The sense that it was originally started in the 400s with further additions over the years.

I had not visited the Abbey for at least 30 years and was quite happy to return. It is probably one of the most ancient building in Marseille as it was initially founded in the 11th century. There is a beautiful crèche during Christmas time....More

The Abbaye Saint Victor looks more like a fortress than a church from the outside. A service was on when we got here, so we could not get full access. An interesting building and worth a visit.

Simple and absolutely stunning. The Abbeye may be a bit out of the way but it's not to be missed. The little biscuit shop nearby is a plus.
