|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The military order of the Hospitaliers de St-Jean-de-Jérusalem (later of Malta), founded this command center in 1180. In 1272 and 1646 it underwent renovations and became a church. The stark façade's only openings are two rose windows. The arrow-shape of the bell-tower is in keeping with the architectural style of the Popes of Avignon. Inside, the central Gothic nave houses the tomb of the Counts of Provence. This splendid monument is to be found on the northern edge of the town between the Mazarin district and the Cours Mirabeau.
