Cathédrale Saint-Sauveur or Aix Cathedral has elements spanning from the 6th to 19th centuries, with its architecture being a unique blend of Romanesque, Gothic and neo-Gothic styles. The 6th century baptisery is still around, while the Romanesque cloister dates back to the 12th century. The Gothic facade and carved doors belong to the 16th century. While several artistic features of the cathedral were destroyed during the French Revolution, there are still some important works of art housed here, including the 15th century Triptyque du Buisson Ardent (The Burning Bush) triptych by Nicolas Froment, and a set of 17 tapestries on the life of Christ originally woven in 1511 for Canterbury Cathedral in England.
