Notre-Dame de la Garde: A symbol on the Edge

More than 800 years of pilgrimage, 157 metres high, a breathtaking view, the Basilica of Marseille is a religious, cultural and tourist monument and a symbol of the entire city.


This documentary dives into the secrets and backstage of the construction of this mythical building, and will exceptionally follow the restoration of its memorable statue, gilded with gold leaf every 30 years.


Thanks to spectacular views without any tourist or public, and 3D reconstructions, this film offers an unprecedented analysis of an impenetrable building, which has resisted everything.
