  • If you find yourself quiet and have views over the old port and Marseille, is one of the places to visit. The Palace does not visit, but it is a beautiful building. And the view is great. To one side the city, across the sea!

  • A beautiful place with a spectacular view of the old port, Cathedral and Museum. From there you get views of landscape that one then can walk them.

  • 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.
