Basilica Our lady of Guardia

Discover the most emblematic figure of Marseilles

Should we go to visit Our Lady? 

From its pedestal, it invites us to climb the steps of the sanctuary to see more closely its wealth, from the ex-votos covering the walls, to the gilded mosaics. But Our Lady of the Guard is also full of scars of the Revolution and the battle for the liberation of Marseille …

You’ll enjoy a magnificent panorama: the church of Our Lady watches over the Phocaean  city.

Visitors will understand why this special place, and the stories that have inhabited it since the thirteenth century, continue to fascinate both locals and tourists from all over the world. The architecture, the panoramic view, the strategic location within the city, may be part of the explanation!
