Overview

Notre-Dame du Mont is located in central Marseilles between La Plaine and the Rue de Rome. The 1588 church was built on the ruins of the Saint-Etienne du Plan, whose altar attracted ex-voto-bearing sailors and pilgrims from all over the world. Population increase led to Notre-Dame's reconstruction and assignment as a parish church in 1824, just in time for Chopin to play the organ at singer Adolphe Nourrit's funeral in 1839. The Rue de Lodi wing was built in 1885, and a multicoloured bas-relief tympanum was added to the Neoclassical façade in 1898. Finally, the bell tower was given a boost in height in 1901.
