  • We live not far away and we go there regularly with our daughter who adores. The view is magnificent. A little what friendly at the gates of the city. The children's playground is spacious is very good for young children and for those a bit bigger. (the minders are all morning).

  • Napoleon 3 world here seems to be used as vacation homes. Today is International Conference Center. Around this building has become a spot popular with tourists and citizens spend chatter and it was turned into a large park. The streets of Marseille and the Mediterranean well see from here.

  • Beautiful place to have picnic with friends and family.specially,in the summer time weather is good and sunny.
  • Came to see the building but loved the view of the harbour even more. The building is now used for conferences. The green lawn is full of children playing and people lying around enjoying the sun. There is a small park for young children.
  • Very beautiful building and the outside is even better with very nice views of the city and the sea.
  • We didn't manage to go inside however the grounds are very good and the views on offer are amazing, from the sea right along the coast and into Vieux Port.
  • Very calm park, not much to do, but the views are very good, it's one of the "don't miss" spots in Marseille.
