Cathedral Saint-Sauveur

Cathédrale Saint-Sauveur d’Aix or simply Aix Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Aix and it was built on the 1st century Roman forum. The cathedral has a very interesting style, a combination of Gothic, Neo-Gothic and Romanesque with Roman columns and parts of a baptistery from a 6th century church. The building was erected on the route of Via Aurelia, the old Roman road, and the legend says that it was built over a Roman temple dedicated to Apollo. There’s a… let’s just say a trend in the city where every old building has beautiful carved doors and bell towers. But, the doors of this cathedral are really amazing.
