Title in french : Abbaye Saint-Victor

Type : monument

City : Marseille

The Abbey of Saint-Victor is certainly one of the oldest buildings in Marseille. It was founded in the fifth century nearby tombs of martyrs, including a ... Saint Victor of Marseilles.

Its crypts contain a collection of sarcophagi from the third to the sixth century AD which makes it a very popular Christian art museum.


The inside of the abbey is austere and it contains some amazing paintings and relics such as a skull or bone fragments ... and its fortified appearance is quite unusual for a religious building.

Finally, from there, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Old Port, sit on benches and taste the local specialty: cakes called ‘navettes' (shuttles) which are made nearby.

To find them it is quite simple, just rely on the smell...
