Visit Grotte Marie Madeleine : Guided tour in the footsteps of Mary Magdalene


Discover Saint Baume in the footsteps of Marie-Madeleine with your guide-lecturer.

In the heart of the Sainte Baume mountain is the cave where Saint Mary Magdalene lived for the last 33 years of her life. It is the most mystical place in Provence, protected by the monks who live in this mountain. Legend has it that Marie-Madeleine comes to Marseille after arriving at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. She stayed there for two years before following the Huveaune River to its source and living a life as a hermit alone in her cave.. When he died, Marie-Madeleine is buried in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume. The tomb of Mary Magdalene is the third most important tomb in Christendom after those of Mary in Ephesus and Peter in Rome.
