At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Holy stones in Aix.

A real architectural mishmash, the "Holy Savour" or Saint-Sauveur Cathedral bears the traces of every era that it has known. Legend has it that the cathedral was built on the site of a pagan temple. What is known for sure is that it has been constantly altered ever since with three naves in different styles surrounded by a baptistery inherited from antiquity and a twelfth-century cloister.

The facade has also seen many changes: the Romanesque portal in the south adjoins another carved in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, which is topped by a fourteenth-century bell tower.

A listed historical monument, Saint-Sauveur houses the Burning Bush Triptych, a fifteenth-century masterpiece by Nicolas Froment.
