Wonderfully preserved Cathedral built over various eras with different architectural styles on top of a Roman Forum. You can take tours in English and French of the cloister and I highly recommend it. It's also possible to see bits of the excavated forum underneath the church.

Beautiful old Cathedral in Aix. Worth seeing as part of a trip into the City. Make sure you have your camera.
