Beschrijving

It was after the discovery of the tombs of St Mary Magdalene and St Maximin in the 13C that Charles d'Anjou built this basilica, a remarkable example of Gothic architecture in Provence. The exterior blends northern influences and local traditions, while the interior boasts a remarkably tall nave. Note the chancel screen (17C); the 17C stalls; the pulpit with its sculptures illustrating the life of Mary Magdalene; and, above all, the painted wood altarpiece (16C) by Ronzen. Also of note is the crypt, which is home to the sarcophagus of Mary Magdalene (4C).
