Construction of the basilic started in the 12th century and stopped in the 16th.It is the resting place of Sainte Marie Madeleine.(Mary Magdalene of the New Testament) since her tomb was rediscovered in the 12th century and guarded ever since.
In one of history's many quirks, in 1794 while the revolutionnary troops were damaging most religious buildings in France, Lucien Bonaparte, one of Napoléon's brothers, saved the basilic and its organ from any degrading.
