What travelers say:

The majestic Église Saint-Jean-de-Malte Saint-Jean-de-Malte Church in Malta is located in the Mazaran district and is a testimony to the historical, religious and cultural changes in the Provence region. For a long period of time in the Middle Middle Ages, Gothic architecture was unpopular here. In the twelfth century, the Knights of Hospitality built the first Gothic church in Aix on the site of a chapel, and the Gothic style was slowly incorporated into daily aesthetic concepts. The current church bell tower is 67 meters high and preserves the style after the expansion in the 13th century. It is the highest point in Aix. The rose window is simple and elegant, and the sculptures are exquisite and restrained. This church is a gem of Gallic architecture. It is a 10-minute walk from the train station.
