Cathedrale St Sauveur, Aix-en-Provence

Featuring the famous triptych 'Mary in the Burning Bush'

Aix's cathedral has its origins in the 5th century and it has been added to throughout the centuries. 

Thus, Romanesque, Gothis, Renaissance and baroque styles are all apparent in its exterior.

Inside, there is a polygonal 5th century Merovingian baptistry (the Frank dynasty) and a 15th century triptych (panel painting) 'Mary in the Burning Bush' by Nicholas Froment.

Services still take place here on a regular basis.
