Eglise Saint Laurent Overview

Eglise Saint Laurent is a parish church nestled in the oldest districts of Marseille, one of the major Marseille attractions and historic sites. This religious heritage is known for its Roman features and its religious importance in the fisherman’s district. The current phase of the church stands over the ruins of a much older church in the Babon castle.

The Parish Church Eglise Saint Laurent is located in the oldest district of the city of Marseille and is among the top Marseille tourist attractions to visit in the beautiful city. The church was destroyed by earthquakes and then again restored to return to its current phase and position as a place of worship. The current church was constructed over the ruins of an old church inside the Babon castle. Over the centuries the beautiful facade of the church has undergone several changes, making its exteriors a blend of several architectural styles.
