    Saturday in the Cathedral Square, Frejus

    A happy bride and groom
    4 more images

    For an interesting and relatively inexpensive Saturday, spend the day in the Cathedral Square. There's a lovely mixed market in the morning, and then in the afternoon the wedding parties arrive to celebrate their nuptials at the Maire and at the Cathedral. In one afternoon we saw four fabulous weddings, one where all the guests wore traditional Provencal costume and another in which the bride wore a fabulous blood-red dress. They arrive in a variety of transport - horse-and-cart, Fiat Uno, Mini - all making a lot of noise, and they depart in the same way for a drive in convoy around the town. The outfits worn by some of the wedding guests call into question the idea that the French have inate style!

    Fréjus Cathedral

    by codrutz Updated Apr 21, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Looks so nice and it has such an ancient and troubled history. The baptistery was built in the 5th century, making it oldest in Provence and one of the oldest in France. The first bishop of Fréjus was Saint Leontinus of Fréjus which has started first time the church. The church developed again from the 13th century.

    Fréjus town hall

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A walk in Fréjus is a breeze of fresh air, though still in the Côte d’Azur department you fell like you're already arrived in Provence. Technically speaking Fréjus is in the administrative region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur which includes Côte d'Azur and most of the provencal cities.

    Fun at Aqualand

    by mikaerkkila Updated Jan 29, 2007
    Twist of the Twister

    Have a real fun at Aqualand located in Frejus. Huge water park with a number of slides, tubes, etc. Try Twister and other ways to speed on water. Park is suitable also for kids, many pools are not deep. Lots of room for parking cars. You can find guides to Aquasplash, it was earlier name for this water park.

    Walk the Boardwalk

    Picture from the boardwalk

    This is actually in the sister town of St Raphael but these towns run into each other so it's hard to tell where one starts and the other ends. The boardwalk has the typical shops, restaurants, and boats out in the marina. This is near the train station so it's convienent.

    Remains of the Roman Aqueduct can be seen along avenue du Général d'armée Jean Calliès, the avenue linking Fréjus to Autoroute A7. They stand as a reminder of Forum Julii's long history and importance during Roman times.

    Cathédrale Saint-Léonce de Fréjus

    Cath��drale Saint-L��once de Fr��jus
    4 more images

    Cathédrale Saint-Léonce was almost entirely rebuilt in the 13th century replacing the original structure which dated from the 5th century A.D. It was built on the site of what was probably a Roman temple from ancient Forum Julii, the city's Roman name. The church is a beautiful example of simple medieval Gothic architecture. Although not clearly visible in the attached photos, the top of the spire is covered with bright green and yellow tiles, which I found to be quite unique. Entry is free of charge, but an entry fee is required for the cloister next door (worth a visit). The cathedral overlooks a small square with a few nice outdoor restaurants.

    Downtown Fréjus

    The downtown area of Fréjus is typical of small towns along the Mediterranean in France: picturesque with pastel coloured traditional architecture. However, Fréjus tends to be devoid of tourist masses given that the town itself is not a major destination. The disadvantage, though, is the lack of shops and activities other than the historic sites and a few restaurants. Attached are pictures taken in downtown Fréjus.

    Despite its partially ruined state, the Roman Amphitheatre of Fréjus is the best preserved Roman monument in town. It was built in the middle of the 1st century A.D. and located extra-muros right near the ancient city walls. Visits are permitted and concerts are often held at the arena.

    Théâtre Romain - Roman Theatre

    Built at the beginning of the 1st century A.D. this semi-circular theatre was Forum Julii's (i.e. Fréjus) first theatre. It was built within the city walls. Unfortunately, much of the theatre lies in ruins, but a modern metal seating structure has been built over it to allow for spectacles to be held today.

    The town hall and bishop's palace

    by Pavlik_NL Written Sep 23, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The

    Almost in one building lay behind one another the "mairie" (town hall) and the old bishop's palace. The lather is almost cut from view by the large colourfull town hall, but the tower peaks up behind it, showing that religious power still hasn't completely faded away (-:
    The contrast between both building is enormous. The bishop's palace is with it's old stones and greyish image not a match in beauty with the pastel-yellow plastered walls of the town hall.

    The early medieval cathedral and monastry

    by Pavlik_NL Written Sep 23, 2004

    The cathedral contrasting the blue sky

    Most special in Frejus is by far the cathedral and it's monastry. This early medieval church devoted to both Maria as well as Saint Stephan is a true work of romanic architecture with inside many highlights of art like paintings, statues as well as woodworks in benches, shrines and altares. Most pictoresque is for sure the innercourt of the monastry, though it rivals with the wonderful "baptisorium" (baptising chapel) at the entrance of the cathedral.
